TORNADO WATCH UNTIL 10 PM THURSDAY FOR ALL OF THE WLBT / FOX 40 VIEWING AREA.
FLASH FLOOD WATCH UNTIL 7 PM FRIDAY FOR ALL OF THE WLBT / FOX 40 VIEWING AREA.
REST OF THURSDAY: As Cindy churns onshore, we'll stick around in the "dry slot". Though, with a bit more sunshine, ample low-level moisture; we expect scattered storms to erupt through the afternoon hours, bringing torrential downpours and the possibility of an isolated, spin-up tornado. This is common in land-falling tropical systems. Stay aware to localized flooding and the severe weather threat. Afternoon temperatures will top out in the middle to upper 80s. Storm chances diminish overnight with lows in the middle 70s.
FRIDAY: Cindy's remnants will get entangled with an approaching front, bringing another round of scattered to numerous downpours across central Mississippi. Severe weather threat will be lower for Friday, but the localized flooding possibility will continue. Temperatures will warm to the middle 80s.
INTO THE WEEKEND: The soupy atmosphere left behind from Cindy and a slow-moving front will keep the weather unsettled through the weekend ahead. Expect scattered storms Saturday through Monday with highs in the middle 80s, lows in the 70s; trending toward the 60s as the front pushes farther south into Monday.
NEXT WEEK: Behind the front, the weather turns more settled as high pressure builds over the region. Expect mostly to partly sunny skies and near-normal highs in the middle and upper 80s by Tuesday through Thursday.
