Beta Could Bring Heavy Rain To Mississippi After Texas Landfall


Heavy rain is a possibility in Mississippi next week as the tropical system named Beta moves inland after a projected landfall in Texas. The National Hurricane Center forecast at midday Saturday showed Beta-- expected to be a hurricane near the Texas coast Monday night-- weakening to a tropical depression as it moves into southwestern Louisiana Thursday, headed toward Mississippi. Forecast models suggest that we could get anywhere between an inch of rain-- and more than ten inches. Stay tuned.
