A gorgeous day, but rain is on the way

WLOX -

This weekend has been beautiful as warmer weather has made it's way back into South Mississippi under plenty of sunshine.

The beautiful weather over the past few days has been brought on by an area of high pressure that was located off to our east on Saturday, bringing in southerly wind.

"I want the warmer weather to stick around as much as anyone, but it is still winter and the cooler weather is about to make a comeback," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Andrew Wilson.

For Sunday, the area of high pressure moves further away as our next system starts to creep towards us.

Cloud cover will move back in for Sunday, with a low chance that some areas may even see a few showers. But, the big rain chances don't move in until the following day.

Heavy rain is expected for Monday, with some areas possibly seeing one to two inches, and even maybe a few rumbles of thunder.

"We're still a few days out, but looking at the threat as of Saturday, I don't believe we'll have a chance for severe weather on Monday," said Wilson

Rain chances look to continue as we move through Tuesday as well, with smaller amounts of accumulation expected.

However, on Wednesday a cold front will sweep through the area and take our rain chances away with it, but we're expecting cooler weather to return as we move into the end of the week.

Don't forget that you can send your photos to WLOX with the WLOX First Alert Weather app, and on WLOX.com.  Be sure to include your name and where your photo is from so we can give you credit.
