SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Wet weather will put a damper on many of this Easter Sunday's events along the central Gulf Coast. Widespread showers and numerous thunderstorms located just offshore are expected to move north Sunday in advance of a Plains cold front.

On Sunday, steady continuous rain appears certain for most of South Mississippi during the morning hours.

Showers may not let up until the evening hours when a cold front moves in from the west. South Mississippi's rainfall amounts will range from about one to two inches by the end of Sunday.

"While we could see heavy downpours and frequent lightning at times, I don't think Sunday will bring a significant severe weather threat to South Mississippi," mentioned WLOX Meteorologist Wesley Williams. "Folks who live near the local rivers will need to begin to pay attention again as we may see river flooding issues on the rise again thanks to Sunday's rain."
