SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - A weather pattern shift looks to end South Mississippi's six-day rain-free streak. It looks like a soggy end to June for the Southeast.
The ridge of high pressure responsible for our recent rain-free weather is finally falling apart. That will allow for showers and thunderstorms to occur each day of the upcoming work week.
"With the higher rain chances, we can expect lower temperatures," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams. "So, this week's weather pattern should provide us with a break from this summer heat wave."
Sunday morning's forecast called for Tuesday and Wednesday to bring this week's best chance for rain. Through Thursday, most of the WLOX area is expected to receive about one to two inches of rainfall, with only a few spots seeing more than two inches.
"Some of this week's storms in South Mississippi will produce heavy downpours," Williams said. "A few of the stronger storms this week will also be capable of frequent lightning and gusty wind."
