THURSDAY: Grab the umbrellas as you head out the door for your Thursday. Our next storm system will approach the region, spreading rain showers over the area. Rainfall totals will be between ½ to 2”. Rain could be heavy at times, but we don’t expect severe weather. Temperatures will likely begin near 60°, dropping into the middle to upper 50s by the end of the afternoon. Rain start to taper off through the evening hours.
FRIDAY: Clouds will be stubborn to round out the work week in central Mississippi. A few showers may linger behind our rain maker early Friday, but generally, we’ll trend drier. Clouds will hold temperatures down in the lower to middle 60s. Gradually, after sunset, clouds will thin out as lows drop into the upper 40s and lower 50s.
EXTENDED RANGE: Clouds will break for more periods of sunshine through the weekend and into next week. Expect highs to rebound into the upper 60s and lower 70s Saturday; lower to middle 70s Sunday ahead of a passive front that will knock highs back a few notches to start off the new week. As of now, Halloween looks to be mainly dry with partly cloudy skies. Temperatures will top out in the lower 70s, lows in the lower to middle 50s.
