REST OF THURSDAY: Showers and storms will likely continue through the remainder of the day across central Mississippi – these showers and storms could lead to localized flooding, especially south of I-20 through this afternoon. Tonight – the weather turns quieter; showers, storms should diminish, leading to areas of fog; lows in the upper 50s.
FRIDAY: The morning hours may be plagued with areas of dense fog to get started, rounding out the work week – overall, the day should be fairly quiet with a few hit or miss showers. Highs will likely soar in deep into the 70s amid partly sunny skies.
LATE FRIDAY – EARLY SATURDAY: There is the possibility that we could have some rough weather in parts of central Mississippi after midnight Friday into Saturday morning. The primary risk will come from damaging winds – though, hail and a tornado can't be ruled out. The bulk of that round should be done by sunrise. STAY WEATHER AWARE DURING THIS TIME.
SATURDAY: There will likely be a lull in the activity through the afternoon hours of Saturday as we wait for a second possibility of severe weather later in the evening. There is a good deal of uncertainty on whether or not the second round will fire; for now we'll keep the mention of it. Highs will be in the middle 70s.
LOOKING AHEAD: As the low pressure winds up, it'll usher in cooler air by the beginning of the week. Scattered showers will stay in the forecast into Sunday with highs in the 60s before clearing out for Monday with highs in the 50s to near 60. A quick warm up expected for Tuesday before another front drops in – eventually bringing January weather back to central Mississippi by the end of the next week.
