TODAY: Our unseasonably warm and muggy stretch continues!... Once again, we are running a good 10 degrees above average with temperatures in the low to middle 80s. Other than a few spotty showers, most spots remain dry through the afternoon.
TONIGHT-FRIDAY: Storms become more widespread later tonight over the Northern half of Mississippi in advance of a cold front. The line of storms will reach the Natchez Trace Parkway early tomorrow morning between 4AM and 7AM, and South Mississippi by mid-morning. The severe threat is low in Central and South Mississippi, although we can't completely rule out gusty straight line wind and large hail that could reach severe limits. Bottom line, we are not expecting a significant severe weather event.
WEEKEND: The front stalls near Highway 98/South Mississippi this weekend, serving as a focal point for scattered showers and a few storms. Due to the location of the front, points south of Highway 84 will have a 50/50 shot at catching a passing shower Saturday afternoon, then showers along with a few storms become more widespread Sunday across Central and South Mississippi. Otherwise, temperatures remain above average with highs near 80 degrees Saturday, and low 80s Sunday.
