BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - A series of weather systems moving through South Mississippi will bring heavy rain and possible flooding to the coast through Sunday.

A Flood Watch has been issued from late Friday through Sunday. Rainfall over the next 48 hours will average two to four inches. Some areas could see six to eight inches of rain.

With local rivers already swollen from the rain over the past week, this next round of rain could send them out of their banks.

Friday night, a warm front moving north will start the rain. Later this weekend, a cold front will move in and stall along the coast. These two systems will combine to bring heavy rain for the next 48 hours.
