Most of the weekend is expected to see pleasant and partly cloudy weather, but Sunday could be stormy.
The National Weather Service in Slidell forecasts a quickly moving cold front will push strong storms across South Mississippi beginning early Sunday afternoon.
Some of the storms could be severe, which the weather service defines as having damaging winds at least 58 mph and/or hail measuring at least 1 inch in diameter. As of Thursday afternoon, there was a 15 percent chance of severe weather in the region Sunday.
The main threats from the storm system would be damaging winds and heavy rainfall of 2 to 3 inches, with locally higher amounts possible.
A small-craft advisory also is possible from Saturday night through Sunday night.
Friday and Saturday are expected to be partly cloudy with lows in the 60s and highs in the mid-70s.
The cold front should bring Sunday's lows into the 50s, and Monday's lows into the 40s with highs in the 60s Monday and Tuesday.
