We’ll continue to see increasing clouds tonight ahead of the rain coming in for Saturday.
Overnight, scattered rain showers will start in parts of South Mississippi. Saturday will be a messy and wet day. We will keep a chance for rain in the forecast all day.
Around noon, we expect more coverage, and after 3 pm, we expect heavier rain as the low moves over South Mississippi. We could see up to three inches of rain across South Mississippi on Saturday.
As a result flash-flooding could be a threat if all that rain falls in a short time-frame which is why there is a Flash Flood Watch in effect through 6 pm Saturday. Severe weather is not expected, most will see heavy rain with a few seeing lightning.
We may see a few light, lingering rain showers early on Sunday, It will also be mostly cloudy and little cooler with a northwest wind. The weather for the Mississippi Gulf Coast Marathon and Half Marathon will be pretty good running weather.
