SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

A weekend cold will bring almost certain rain showers and thunderstorms to the Gulf Coast this weekend. That means that anyone headed outdoors, especially those buying those last-minute gifts, should plan their trips around the forecast.

On an unseasonably warm Saturday, there will only be a slight chance for pop-up showers throughout the day. Any rain showers on Saturday should be light and brief, more of a nuisance than actually disrupting any plans.

A cold front approaching from the west will move into the area tonight, after midnight, and then across the area through midday Sunday.

This frontal passage will be accompanied by a line of showers and storms. Some storms may become strong as the front moves through, especially early Sunday morning over western counties, but the potential for severe storms is low.

"With the disruptive weather setup that we have on Sunday, many will see rain, some will hear thunder, but only a few if anyone at all will get severe weather in the WLOX area of South Mississippi," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams.

"These unsettled conditions will continue well into Sunday so keep your umbrella handy the whole day," Williams continued.

Mild conditions are expected Sunday morning. But, noticeably colder air will move in during the day on Sunday. The afternoon will be chilly, damp, and breezy.

Chilly air remains in place as the upcoming week begins with highs in the 50s on Monday and Tuesday. But, relatively warmer air arrives by midweek before our next cold front hits on Thursday.

Be sure to open your WLOX Weather App to track any rain in the area with the app's Live Radar. It'll also come in handy if the WLOX Weather Team sends important notifications as the weather becomes active.
