Inland Waterway Weather Report

Weather Highlights: 

  • Heavy rainfall is expected over south MS and LA today. Isolated flash flooding will be possible.
  • A slow-moving front will bring some heavy rains to the Arkansas & Red River basins early next week. This will be a bit of a relief as these basins are in severe to extreme drought. Flash flooding will be possible though. 

7-day QPF totals (through next Monday morning):

  • Upper MS: Between ¼-1 ½” is possible over the region.
  • Middle MS/Ohio Valley: Up to ½” is forecast over the region. 
  • Lower MS Valley: Between 1 ½-5” is possible throughout the region. From TX into AR, 5-7” should be expected with isolated higher amounts possible.
