Changes from the previous update:

  • An additional 0.5-2 inches of rain will be possible as isolated to scattered showers, and thunderstorms develop today.

  • Tides have already peaked across the open coast and will slowly recede through the day. Tides inside the tidal lakes are currently peaking.

  • A few tornadoes may still be possible this morning over coastal MS.

The attached briefing highlights the threats associated with this system.
