It will be a wet day for most of South Mississippi as a slow-moving cold front finally reaches the Coast.

According to the National Weather Service in Slidell, there is an 80 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms for most of Friday.

"The cold front is moving in and it is going to bring some rain," NWS meteorologist Robert Ricks said. "It has reached the I-10 corridor and it is bringing quite a bit of rain with it."

A flash flood watch is in effect for the area until later this evening.

Ricks said there is a slight chance of severe weather, but the risk should diminish throughout the day.

The rain, Ricks said, should move out of the area sometime later tonight.

While Friday will be soggy, Saturday will bring plenty of afternoon sunshine with temperatures in the lower 70s.
