(CNN) — It’s been nothing short of a deluge across the Mid-South in the last 48 hours, and nothing is changing Wednesday.
“No sugar coating the short term forecast,” said the National Weather Service (NWS) office in Little Rock, Arkansas.
The highest risk for excessive rainfall is forecast for the second day in a row. Then another round of rain is likely Thursday before a drying trend kicks in Friday.
“Rainfall and flash flooding will continue to be a major concern, following an extreme day of rainfall across the southeast Delta region,” the NWS said of the Wednesday forecast.
Another 2 to 5 inches of rain is forecast Wednesday for parts of eastern Arkansas and northern Mississippi, where the ground is already saturated. And more rainfall could mean flash flooding.
