JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Heavy downpours continue around the Jackson Metro today. Storm Team 12 Meteorologist Russ Pappas was in the Mobile Weather Lab tracking localized flooding on roadways.

While the rain is steady, he says there’s no evidence of water pooling up on the roads right now. A Flash Flood Watch has been canceled but the rain will continue on into the evening.

Citizens are expected to see about two to four inches of rain, and that could lead to isolated flooding in some parts. Residents are reminded to drive cautiously on the roads and stay weather aware.
