LISTEN: Ashlyn Jackson discusses Nicholas
“The main threat is gonna be rainfall. However, we’re not sure about how much rainfall exactly,” said forecaster Ashlyn Jackson, with the National Weather Service in Jackson. “It just depends on wherever Tropical Storm Nicholas dissipates.
Nicholas is not expected to make landfall in the state, but rather to skirt the coasts of Texas and Louisiana. When it comes ashore, Mississippi will be on the eastern side of it, and the course may take its remains across the state.
