VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) – The National Weather Service is predicting a rapid rise along the lower Mississippi River in the next two weeks.

Forecasters predict minor flooding in at least some points below where the Ohio River joins the Mississippi in the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee.

National Weather Service meteorologist Ed Tarver tells The Vicksburg Post that heavy rain in the Midwest will send a pulse of water downriver.

The river is predicted to crest at Memphis, Tennessee, and points north by March 4, with crests coming later downstream.

So far, the flooding is not predicted to be severe, with water covering mostly woods, fields and some low-lying roads.
