Countdown to kickoff 2022: George County Rebels

LUCEDALE, Miss. (WLOX) - There’s not much topography on a football field. But that’s not stopping George County’s quest to get to the top. “We want to climb the mountain. We want to be at the peak,” head coach James Ray said. “You can’t just decide one day you want to climb the mountain and do it, it takes preparation and a little bit of failure. You’re not going to get to the top the first time.”

08/03 Ryan’s “Wet” Wednesday Morning Forecast

Another rainy afternoon lies ahead! It won’t be any more or less so than yesterday was, but we will see gradually drying conditions for the rest of the week. That means today will be another relatively cooler day thanks to increased afternoon cloud cover and rain chances, around 60% again, and flash flooding issues could pop up if any showers linger. We’ve seen rain nearly every day for about 2 weeks, but due to their scattered nature the rainfall accumulation has been very patchy. For example, the area near New Augusta has received only trace amounts of rain since Sunday, while at least 3 other Pine Belt cities estimate upwards of 4-5″. If a slow-moving shower sits over one of the drier areas, it won’t cause any concern, but if it pops up over one of the wetter some localized flooding issues are possible. Be aware of this and avoid any areas of standing water.
