Another round of hit or miss showers and storms is expected today. Some storms may produce heavy downpours thanks to more tropical moisture moving in from the west. Pearl River and Hancock County are under a Flash Flood Watch until Monday morning. High temperatures are expected to reach the mid to upper 80s.
We may have more showers and storms overnight Sunday into Monday morning. Rain is good bet throughout the day on Monday. Heavy rain will be possible, and we’ll have to watch out for flash flooding. High temps will be in the mid 80s.
Scattered showers and storms are possible on Tuesday with highs in the upper 80s. Over the next three days, we may pick up 1-3 inches of rain in South Mississippi. Localized areas could see over 3 inches.
In the tropics, we have Tropical Storm Dorian east of the Lesser Antilles. As it moves closer to the Caribbean by Wednesday, it may briefly become a Category One hurricane. At this time, it is not a threat to the Gulf. However, we’ll closely watch it. There is another tropical wave off the East Coast of Florida that has a high chance for development. It is expected to remain off the East Coast. It is not a threat to us.
