Wesley's Blog: Wet weather woes in Halloween weekend's forecast

Parts of South Mississippi could see very heavy rain over the weekend. Parts of South Mississippi could see very heavy rain over the weekend.
SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

From the Texas to Mississippi Gulf Coast, Halloween plans are in peril thanks to a developing rain system.

Even though the weather has been nice on Friday in South Mississippi, the rain chance will increase significantly on Saturday and Sunday.

The upper-level system responsible for our potential poncho-worthy weekend weather was located over the Southwest U.S. on Friday, causing scattered flooding rains and severe weather across parts of Texas. It is forecast to move into the Mississippi area this weekend.

When time will the rain move in?

A squall line over Louisiana will head east into Mississippi during Saturday evening around the 5pm to 7pm timeframe. A few storms could be strong. If they are, the threats would be strong wind gusts and a brief/weak tornado. By far, South MS's heavy rain potential is much more significant than the severe weather threat. Interestingly enough, since we fall back one hour early Sunday morning, possibly during the heaviest rain, it could seem like a LONG stormy night.

Heavy rain should continue over South MS through Sunday morning. And then scattered showers will linger through Sunday evening before tapering off no later than Monday. Monday's partly cloudy sky becomes mostly sunny on Tuesday.

Stay tuned to WLOX and wlox.com for further updates from the WLOX First Alert Weather team as we continue to track this system.
