JACKSON, Miss.--The Magnolia State got a good soaking this weekend as rain moved through just in time to dowse Christmas shoppers across the entire state. The heaviest rains happened in the geographic center of the state. parts northern Attala, Holmes, Carroll, Montgomery, Leflore, Humphreys and Choctaw counties saw three and a half to four inches of rain, according to Doppler estimates from the National Weather Service.
Other parts of the state, generally from I-20 to the southern Delta, but also including a swath through Hattiesburg and southwest Mississippi, got anywhere from one to two inches as two systems moved through this weekend.
Now that the rain has moved out of the state, for the most part, you can expect to see clearing skies, according to the Weather Service, but temperatures will remain mild for the next three days, with highs in the mid 60s to near 70.
We'll have another chance for showers in the middle of the week, with temps cooling down to under 60 for highs Thursday and Friday.
