Mississippi Skies: More rain possible for some parts of the state

Published 9:45 pm Monday, September 25, 2023

As expected, Monday brought an “all or nothing” rain event across the state. While some areas remained dry, others ended up with a long, slow rainfall lasting several hours. Although we’re a long way from erasing rainfall deficits, soaking showers were certainly welcome where they traveled.

We’ll have some more rain chances Tuesday, especially in south-central Mississippi and the Gulf Coast regions.

In areas where we did get some decent rainfall Monday, a little extra time commuting may be needed Tuesday as dense fog is possible.
