More rain, high winds as tropical weather blows through

Rain and thunderstorms will be hanging over South Mississippi most of today and tonight as a small, well-defined low pressure system moves west from south central Louisiana, according to the National Weather Service.

South Mississippi also could see some tropical-storm force wind gusts and heavy rainfall associated with that system.

As a result, a Coastal flood warning is in effect for Hancock County through Wednesday afternoon. Tides will be two to three feet above normal and highest tides will be seen Wednesday morning.

Boaters should be advised that a marine small craft warning remains in effect today and tonight with wind gusts 30 to 40 knots possible.

In the tropics, a wave located across the northwest Caribbean is forecast to move into the central Gulf of Mexico toward midweek, bringing more rain and potentially flooding. This should clear up toward the end of the week as the wave moves away.
