The National Weather Service has issued a flash-flood advisory for South Mississippi through 1 p.m. Tuesday, with onshore winds and tides combining to generate flooding in low-lying areas.
The three Coast counties could see tides 1 foot to 2 feet above normal during this time, the NWS says, with easterly and east-southeasterly winds picking up and piling water along the Coast, especially on eastern-facing shorelines and tidal lakes..
The highest tides are expected late Monday and Tuesday mornings, causing minor flooding of low-lying roadways and tidal lakes.
Chances of rain as Cruisin’ The Coast kicks off are 40 percent Sunday evening and 60 percent on Monday. Tuesday brings a 40 percent chance of rain, with the weather expected to improve as crowds build up through the week for finale weekend.

The Coast will enjoy cooler temperatures, with highs forecast in the low 80s all week.
