FOG

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Flash flooding is possible Monday into Tuesday, generally east of
the Interstate 55 corridor, as the center of Subtropical Storm 
Alberto moves inland to the east of Mississippi. One to three 
inches of rain will be possible with locally higher amounts not
out of the question, which could potentially lead to some 
flooding of at least low lying areas. Please continue to monitor 
the latest forecasts from the National Weather Service and the 
National Hurricane Center for updates on the track and potential 
impacts associated with Alberto.
