MONDAY: A warm front will continue to push well north of the area this morning; behind it, expect morning clouds to give way to sun intervals by the afternoon hours. Temperatures will top out in the lower to middle 80s amid an aggressive south breeze. A few gusts could top 30 mph through the afternoon. Clouds will roll back in with lows dropping into the 60s by early Tuesday.
TUESDAY: Another warm, windy day expected; after morning clouds, a few peeks of sunshine are possible through the afternoon hours. Highs will top out in the lower to middle 80s again with wind gusts to 35 mph possible. A few passing showers or storms will be possible, mainly for the afternoon hours.
MID-WEEK SOAKING: A frontal boundary will approach the region by Wednesday, bringing an unsettled pattern with waves of showers and storms to central Mississippi. A strong storm can’t be ruled out but overall, severe weather threat looks to be low. We’ll keep highs near 80 on Wednesday; dropping into the middle 70s for Thursday. Rainfall amounts could total up to be about an inch.
LATE WEEK: The upper ridge over the Atlantic will continue to pump in warm, humid air into the region – keeping temperature near 80° Friday and Saturday with off and on shower chances. The front our north will continue to act as a trigger to fire the storms off. We’ll see highs fall off slightly by early next week, but still well above normal for this time of the year; in the lower 70s Sunday and Monday.
