North of Vicksburg, the river has recorded slight rises, but the National Weather Service said Vicksburg and other points south are not expected to record rises before the river falls below flood stage.
In Memphis, where the year's high crest on May 10 was 48 feet, 14 feet above flood stage, another crest is expected Tuesday. It is forecast for 31 feet, 3 feet below flood stage.
Downriver, including at Vicksburg, stages aren't expected to drop below flood stage until mid-June.
"We're not going to get a second crest around here," said Marty Pope, senior service hydrologist with the National Weather Service in Jackson. "We'll continue to see it falling out, with less flows coming in from the Upper Mississippi than thought."
