MONDAY: Expect another day starting off with patchy fog across central Mississippi – trending toward variably cloudy skies by the afternoon hours. All of this amid warm southerly breezes and temperatures beelining for the 70s again. We’ll mention spotty showers west of I-55 at times, but don’t expect a washout. Fog will become more prevalent overnight as a batch of showers drops south into the area overnight. Lows will only drop into the 60s.
TUESDAY: Areas of dense fog and scattered showers will greet us out the door – all of this with temperatures only manage in the lower 70s through the day as a front pushes through the area. Most of the shower chances will dry up by mid-day. This front also won’t have any cold air bottled up behind it; so we will look to stay mild.
MID-WEEK CHANGES: Wednesday will feature mild temperatures still in the 70s ahead of showers and a few rumbles of thunder heading our way by Thursday with a much stronger front diving southward. Temperatures Thursday will start off in the 60s – falling into the 50s by the end of the day. By Friday – we’ll be dry and mostly bright with highs managing the lower 50s.
WEEKEND SOAKER: By the upcoming weekend, a series of disturbances will push across the ArkLaMiss – bringing with it an influx of Gulf moisture. Rain chances will increase from west to east through late Saturday, becoming widespread by Sunday. As of now – it stands that we could see a few inches of rain to round out 2016 and start 2017.
