SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

A cold front is on the way today. As it arrives, expect bouts of wet weather on Monday. It could even be stormy at times.

Rain showers will be likely across much of the Gulf Coast region on Monday. There will also be a chance for thunderstorms. Some of those thunderstorms could even be on the strong side.

Storm damage has already been reported across central Mississippi and parts of Louisiana. There was even a possible tornado in Covington and Jones counties, southeast of Jackson, MS.

Overall, South Mississippi's threat for severe damaging weather will be low to very low. On a scale of 'one' up to 'five,' South Mississippi's risk level is about a 'one.' A few strong storms will be possible.

The main severe damaging weather threats, if any, will be strong wind gusts. But, a weak tornado cannot be ruled out. Rain amounts should be less than one inch in all locations.

South Mississippi's storm timing will be mainly from mid-morning into the early afternoon, according to a Monday morning forecast.

"By the end of Monday, most of South Mississippi will see rain," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams. "But, only some of South Mississippi will see thunderstorms. And only a few folks, if any, will get severe damaging weather."

Drier and slightly cooler air arrives after the front passes.
