The radar estimates show one area just west of McComb, very near Percy Quinn State Park and Lake Tangipahoa, got over five inches since Friday.
Areas along the Mississippi River in and south of Natchez show totals of nearly four inches, while areas north into central Mississippi and the Delta show lower totals of one and two inches, with some areas occasionally showing three inches.
Just across the river, in Louisiana, areas like Monroe got the brunt of the rainfall from a frontal system which is bringing cooler temperatures for the Magnolia State. Highs for Monday are expected near 70 in some parts of the state, with 77 Tuesday and temps back into the 80s by Wednesday.
Meanwhile, some festivals scheduled for the weekend were postponed because of the widespread rainfall. The St. Rose de Lima Heritage Festival in Bay St. Louis and the Gulf Coast Latin Festival in Biloxi were called off, with a November 3 date set for the St. Rose festival make-up.
In the capital city, Wells Fest went on as planned, with thousands attending. Mac MacAnally was the headline act, along with Greg "Fingers" Taylor, both vets of Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefers (MacAnally has had several hits, most notable of late is "Down the Road" by Kenney Chesney). He played before most of the heavier showers moved in. That festival raises money for different causes. A local YMCA was the beneficiary this year.
