TUESDAY: A few patches of fog can’t be ruled out, but generally – expect a mix of sun and clouds to push highs well into the 80s through the afternoon hours. We’ll stay rain-free, though muggier air will begins to infiltrate the region. Fog will take over, especially south of I-20, by Wednesday morning.
WEDNESDAY: High pressure continue to hold its own, but will begin to slip a bit as the ridge starts to break down on its western edge. That could yield a shower or two amid a mix of sun and clouds. Highs will still manage the middle 80s amid some of the muggiest air thus far this year moving into place.
EXTENDED FORECAST: The high pressure ridge’s grip will continue to loosen its stronghold over central Mississippi, opening up the chances for showers and storms to increase across the region. Expect clouds to thicken amid highs in the 80s through Thursday and Friday. Rain chances will be their most prevalent late Friday into Saturday. Don’t expect a complete washout, but be ready to dodge a few rain drops. Chance of rain will retreat a bit for Sunday before returning early next week.
