SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Daily doses of April showers are possible this week as South Mississippi's weather pattern turns wetter.

The best rain chances will be on Tuesday and Thursday thanks to two separate mid-April storm systems.

The upper system associated with Monday PM's and Tuesday's rain was located off the south California coast on Sunday morning. As this storm system moves across the Plains and Southeast, it will carry a potential for severe weather. 

"In South Mississippi, we don't expect any significant severe weather from that system," commented WLOX Meteorologist Wesley Williams."While a few stronger storms could be possible near Pearl River County, that system's worst severe weather threat should remain to our west, across the ArkLaTex region, on Monday and Monday night."

The upper system associated with Wednesday PM's, Thursday's, and Friday AM's rain was located near the Gulf of Alaska on Sunday morning. This late-week system doesn't appear to carry a severe weather threat at all. The current forecast calls for one to two inches of rain in the South Mississippi region through the end of the week which isn't all that bad since we have been rain-free for a good nine days in a row.

The WLOX First Alert Weather Team will inform you of South Mississippi's rain forecast on-air, online, and on social media sites like Facebook & Twitter.
