SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

This week begins wet and ends hot for the Gulf Coast region.

Unsettled weather to kick off the week for the Southeast U.S. thanks to a weather disturbance aloft across the region and copious tropical moisture in place.

Monday began with mainly coastal storms. Locals will want to watch out for downpours possibly affecting their commutes along parts of Highway 90 or Interstate 10 in South Mississippi.

There could be a break in the rain activity later Monday morning. But, more showers and thunderstorms should fire up by the early afternoon thanks to daytime heating.

Higher than normal rain chances will continue on Tuesday. By the end of Tuesday, there will likely be about one to three inches of rainfall across much of South Mississippi.

Our weather pattern shows less rain and more heat for the second half of the week. High temperatures will be back in the 90s beginning Wednesday and continuing into the weekend.

Heat index could top 107 degrees later this week which could trigger heat advisories for parts of the region. Those would be the first heat advisories for the Gulf Coast region this season.
