BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - The WLOX First Alert Weather Team is tracking showers with pockets of heavier downpours moving through South Mississippi.

Timing

Rain will continue off and on into the evening hours. Latest hi-resolution model data suggest the heaviest downpours will begin to taper off between 8-10 PM.

Severe Weather

While there was an initial concern for a few strong to severe storms. The Storm Prediction Center has dropped South Mississippi from the “marginal” risk. However, a heavy downpour with some gusty winds can not be ruled out.

How much rain

Rainfall totals are expected to range between 1-2 inches. Flash flooding may be an issue for low lying areas and spots that have poor drainage.
