Mississippi Skies: The next round of rain is coming, but what about severe storms?

Published 1:00 am Friday, January 6, 2023

After one more pleasant day today, the next chance for rain is approaching quickly. We don’t expect severe weather this time, but additional rain isn’t good news for the multiple communities in Mississippi still under river flood warnings. Right now, minor flooding is occurring for the Upper Pearl River at Neshoba County; East Hobolochitto Creek at Pearl River County; the Lower Pearl River in Pearl River and Hancock counties; and the Pascagoula River in Greene, George, and Jackson counties.  Let’s hope for people in those communities that the creeks and rivers can handle additional water.

In the meantime, the sun will shine brightly and temperatures will be seasonal.
