SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Got plans on Saturday & Sunday? The Gulf Coast region is set to see a wetter weather pattern unfold over the weekend.

By Sunday's end, much of the region will pick up one to two inches of rainfall. There could be downpours that allow for isolated higher rain totals.

"It's those isolated spots that see the downpours that could be at risk for minor flooding, especially if the ground is still soaked from the last few weeks," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams.

Much of the rain shower and thunderstorm activity expected for Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and into parts of Monday is generally due to daytime heating and abundant tropical moisture, But, a stalled frontal boundary across the region could assist in thunderstorm development.

"There will be a risk for a few isolated stronger storms on Saturday and Saturday night," Williams said. "We're not expecting any widespread major issues. But, anyone heading outdoors, hitting the roads, will want to keep a close eye on the weather. Check the radar before you leave."
