Rain chances back on the rise as deep moisture returns


The end of last week and first part of the weekend brought beautiful conditions with no chance for rain and lower humidity, but as we move into Sunday we had more humidity and showers returned to the forecast.

Unfortunately, for the beginning on the work week are rain chances are only going to go up.

"The higher rain chances are developing as a deeper layer of moisture is building back over our area with winds out of the south," said Meteorologist Andrew Wilson

With more moisture in the atmosphere it won't just mean higher rain chances, but also more humid conditions.

While we will have rain chances each day this week, luckily the rain chances won't stay too high like what we had earlier on in June.

"For Monday and Tuesday we will have our higher rain chances." said Wilson. "Once we move into Wednesday and Thursday the deeper layer of moisture shifts east and we will be just left with typical pop-up showers and storms."

The highest rain chances this week are reserved for the beginning and end of the week.

By Friday and Saturday a frontal boundary will approach and stall out just north of our area.

Moisture will pool a bit in front of the front and with that we will have another increased chance for rain on Friday and Saturday.

By the end of the week, most of South Mississippi can expect to have seen 2-4 inches of additional rainfall, so be sure to keep the rain boots and umbrellas nearby.

Also, be sure to keep plenty of drinking water on hand as humidity will make for very warm conditions throughout the week.
