06/05 Ryan’s “Finally Wet” Wednesday Forecast
After an extended dry and sunny period, it’s finally wet again in South MS! Tropical moisture from the remnants of a wave we started watching in the Caribbean over the weekend will be moving in overnight, increasing tomorrow’s rain chances.
Cloudy skies, widespread showers, and a few thunderstorms will be likely for the rest of the week and will begin to taper off through the weekend.
The next two days have at least a “marginal” risk for severe weather, but strong storms will be few and far between. The biggest threat right now will be the potential for flooding as the rainfall totals pile up. Flash Flood Watches have been issued for the coastal counties and Pearl River county until tomorrow, but those may be extended.
A few areas today already saw nearly 3″ of rain since noon, and we still have a few days of stormy weather left.
Significant rainfall will continue until Sunday night/Monday morning, when the front will finally push through. We won’t see the return of our sunny and dry weather until the middle of next week though.
