SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Numerous thunderstorms are expected to develop throughout Monday and persist into Monday night across South Mississippi. A few of the thunderstorms could produce strong gusty winds and frequent lightning. 

"The main concern will be very heavy rainfall in a short period of time," said WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams. "This could produce flooding of poorly-drained, low-lying areas and roads in some local areas."

This is a continuation of the wet weather pattern from this past weekend. One to three inches of rainfall or more are expected in our region through midweek.

"While it's tough to tell exactly which part of the day will be the rainiest for most of South Mississippi, the latest best guess is this evening," Williams said early Monday morning. "It can still rain in the morning too. But, just maybe quite not as widespread as what is expected for the evening."

A Gulf low pressure system keeps things wet in South Mississippi for Monday and Tuesday. As this Gulf moisture moves west of us, expect our rain activity gradually decrease by midweek. 

Even though there could be a few showers on Independence Day Wednesday, it should be less wet. So it'll probably be better for fireworks then than it was this past weekend.
