THURSDAY: High pressure will begin to lose its grip on central Mississippi as it shifts farther east. Expect mostly to partly sunny skies with highs in the middle to upper 70s as winds turn southerly. Clouds will thicken late as lows attempt to drop into the upper 40s and lower 50s.
FRIDAY: Clouds will continue to mix with sunshine to round out the work week – expect highs to rebound from the 40s and 50s early to the middle 70s by the afternoon hours. A shower or two could be possible, but don’t expect many people to get wet.
EXTENDED FORECAST: Rain will generally hold off until later Saturday as a cold front moves toward the region. There will likely be plenty of dry hours for Saturday, but expect Saturday night into Sunday morning to be wet as the front pushes through. A few of the storms could be gusty as they roll through, but the overall severe threat is low. Highs by Sunday will likely hold in the upper 50s to lower 60s as the cooler air pushes in. Behind the front, we’ll slowly warm back up into next week, but generally, expect cooler than average temperatures to start off April.
