Heavy rain will move through today

It’s a very soggy Saturday. Showers have been moving through this morning, and widespread rain will continue through the morning and afternoon. It could get heavy at times. We are expecting around 1-3″ of widespread rain by the end of the day, which poses a threat for flooding. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for Hancock, Harrison, and Jackson Counties throughout the afternoon. While a strong storm or two can’t be ruled out, our severe weather threat is pretty low. Highs will be in the mid 60s with a breezy southeast wind.

The rain will begin to taper off well after the sunset, and it will be cooling off quickly. Winds will shift from the northwest, and we’ll drop into the 40s Sunday morning. We’ll barely make it into the low 50s in the afternoon with clouds sticking around.

Some clouds will clear on Monday, and we’ll start off in the 30s. The sunshine returns on Monday and Tuesday with highs in the 50s.
