SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

The wet weather that has been hitting much of South Mississippi this weekend could be continuing into the early part of the week. Another round of storms is expected to come through parts of Pearl River and Harrison Counties between 8 and 10 p.m. Sunday.

Following strong storms and showers on Saturday, off and on scattered thunderstorms continued on Sunday, with partly to mostly cloudy skies and highs in the 80s.

A few storms may be on the strong side with gusty winds and small hail. Heavy rain is possible, which may lead to flash flooding.

The following counties will remain under a flash flood watch through Tuesday evening:

  • Hancock
  • Harrison
  • Jackson
  • Pearl River

An additional three to six inches of rain, with some areas seeing higher amounts, will bring storm totals to four to seven inches. Some low-lying areas and other spots that usually see flooding may see more.

Heavy winds and rain on Saturday night caused some areas of South Mississippi to see some minor storm damage. Drivers along the Gulf Coast also saw some delays after the rain led to multiple crashes.
