**FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FOR MOST OF CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT**
TONIGHT: The tropical-like air mass will stick around will clouds increasing again through the overnight hours – we'll mention the chance of a storm or two, though most will likely stay dry tonight. Temperatures will stay in the 70s amid a continued south breeze around 15 – 25 mph.
SUNDAY: STAY WEATHER AWARE through the day on Sunday as a strong, yet slow-moving front will bring rounds of showers and storms to region. A few of the storms could be on the strong side with gusty winds and hail being the primary risks, though a spin-up tornado can't be ruled out. The bigger threat may come from the possibility of heavy downpours causing localized flooding. Rainfall amounts could total 2-4" with higher amounts possible. Most of the storms will exit with the front through Sunday evening. Highs will be in the 70s to near 80.
EARLY WEEK: Behind our front, expect drier air to take over, ushering in a quiet start for the new work week. Highs on Monday will be in the upper 70s to near 80 under mainly sunny skies. Sunshine will stick around into Tuesday, though afternoon temperature will come back to the middle 80s.
LATE WEEK: Another storm system will drop into central Mississippi and may park over the area through the latter half of the week, bringing heavy downpours off and on – potentially posing the threat for more flooding. Wednesday will be near 80; end of the week highs underneath the clouds and the upper disturbance will be in the lower 70s.
