After an unseasonably mild stretch, some quick changes are ahead...
Despite a solid cloud cover, temperatures are running well above normal again this afternoon; most of Central an South Mississippi are in the middle and upper 70s. Also, humidity levels are very high making it feel down right muggy. With lots of moisture in place, an approaching storm system will kick a round of showers and even a few storms, beginning this evening. While we're not expecting widespread rain and storms, hit and miss showers continue tonight through tomorrow morning with the potential for a few storms in the Delta, mainly along and north of Highway 82 where gusty wind is possible within any storm that develops; but due to weak upper level dynamics, the severe threat is very limited. For the rest of us, rainfall totals will remain light, generally less than 1 quarter of an inch and many spots will receive much less.
Showers end from north to south tomorrow morning as the cold front moves across the state. The front reaches the I-20 corridor by mid-morning, then the I-59 corridor by mid afternoon. As the front passes, cooler air will follow; temperatures hold in the upper 60s before lunch time, then slowly fall throughout the afternoon. One exception is South Mississippi; since the front won't arrive until mid-afternoon, areas south of Highway 84 will likely reach the low 70s.
For the rest of this weekend, clearing and chilly; dropping into the upper 30s and low 40s by Sunday morning, then mostly clear during the day Sunday with afternoon temperatures in the upper 50s and low 60s. We remain dry and seasonably cool into next week with highs in the 50s & 60s and morning lows in the 30s and 40s.
Have a great weekend!
