The second full week of the new year is getting off to very wet note for Mississippi. Up to one inch of rainfall is likely across the state with the heaviest activity expected across southeastern Mississippi through the early afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

Rainfall was widespread early Monday with embedded moderate to heavy downpours. While rain will be heavy at times, no significant flooding problems are expected.

The rainfall is associated with a frontal boundary that is expected to push through the state tonight. The rainfall will taper off from the west and northwest by late afternoon and evening.

Despite all of the rain and cloud cover, high temperatures are forecast to remain above normals statewide in the upper 50s to low 60s.

Another frontal boundary is expected to move through the state late Tuesday as a more progressive weather pattern takes hold but no additional significant rainfall is forecast.

This front will be followed by sharply colder conditions on Wednesday with highs only in the 30s north to low to mid 40s south with overnight lows in the 20s.
