Two weather systems to bring rain this week

Two weather systems to bring rain this week

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - It has been a nice, dry weekend across South Mississippi, but next week brings chances of rain.

As we move through the rest of the weekend and into the early part of the week, southerly winds will continue to bring in moisture and warm air ahead of our first system.

The first system arrives on Tuesday as a low passing to our north pulls a cold front through our area, bringing rain chances back in for Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday morning.

The system does not look to bring severe weather or a lot of rainfall.

Most of South Mississippi will only receive between a tenth of an inch and a half inch through Wednesday morning.

Our rain chances won't end there, though. Our next cold front will arrive on Thursday as another area of low pressure moves down from the Pacific Northwest.

Our second system doesn't look like it will severe weather either, with less than a half inch falling across South Mississippi.

The small amounts of rainfall associated with each system are good news for South Mississippi because, over the weekend, many rivers are at flood stage or are close to it.

Because rainfall isn't expected to accumulate, many rivers should fall back within their banks.

After rain moves through the middle part of the week, the end of the week and weekend should be much drier.
