Scattered showers Tuesday as a warm front approaches

Today: As a warm front approaches from the south, scattered showers will be possible today across coastal Mississippi. High temperatures should be warmer than yesterday, mainly in the 60s. Showers and thunderstorms will increase in coverage overnight as a warm front moves northward across the area. A few strong to severe storms will be possible late in the night to the west of Interstate 55. Overnight temperatures are likely to be steady or slowly rise through the 60s. Tomorrow: showers and thunderstorms will move across the area ahead of a cold front, especially during the first half of the day. A few storms could become strong to severe, and heavy rain is likely as well. There will be a very low risk of severe weather and excessive rainfall across much of South Mississippi on Wednesday as a stalling cold front approaches from the west. Damaging winds will be the main threat. But, an isolated tornado or two will be possible. Rain amounts in South Mississippi through Wednesday afternoon are expected to range from one to two inches, with locally higher amounts possible. How much bad weather we see on Wednesday all depends on how close the stalling front gets to us before it finally stalls and then retreats on Thursday.
