SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

June has wrapped up on the wet side for much of South Mississippi. During the month of June, much of South Mississippi received between 5 to 10 inches of rain.

The rainiest areas, parts of Stone and north Harrison counties, saw more than 150% of their normal June rainfall.

At WLOX in Biloxi, we received 4.8" of rainfall during the month of June. Biloxi's normal June rainfall is about 7.1". So, we only received about 70% of the amount of rainfall we would typically get in June.

"Harrison County is ahead of schedule on our annual rainfall," WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams explained. "We have about 35 to 50 inches of rain so far this year. And we would normally have about 30 inches of rain."

"Based on climate records, July is typically Biloxi's rainiest month of the year," Williams pointed out. "So, we'll probably stay ahead of normal rainfall until we start to enter the fall season."
