FRIDAY: A milder start will give us a milder finish to round out the work week. Expect a mix of sun and high clouds. Highs will make moves into the middle and upper 70s as breezes start to flow in, a bit aggressively, from the south. Clouds will thicken overnight – lows will dip into the upper 50s and lower 60s.
WEEKEND OUTLOOK: A weak front nearby will spark a chance for a few showers both Saturday and Sunday but overwhelming chances for rain look to stay absent through the weekend ahead. Expect highs to top out in the upper 70s and lower 80s; overnights in the lower 60s.
TEMPERATURE DIVIDE: A nearly stationary front will bring a stark contrast in temperatures across the region by Sunday - south of the boundary, highs will top out in the upper 70s and lower 80s; north of the front, highs will run in the 60s and lower 70s. There is still some uncertainty on where the front will set up, but expect a divide across the state.
INTO NEXT WEEK: A storm system brewing to the west will be slow to make progress toward central Mississippi. A few weak disturbances may kick off a few showers and storm Monday and Tuesday before the main front moves closer by late Wednesday into Thursday. Highs will still manage the upper 70s and lower 80s.
