TUESDAY: Sunshine will mix with a few clouds as high pressure continues to move farther east – flowing in moisture over the region. Expect the muggier air – amid a mainly dry rule, to make highs creep upward into middle 80s. Lows will dip into the lower to middle 60s with mostly clear skies with areas of patchy fog possible.
WEDNESDAY: A few more patches of fog will be possible as you start off your Wednesday morning across central and southwest Mississippi. Expect mostly to partly sunny skies to prevail once again as temperatures continue to warm from the morning 60s in the middle 80s by afternoon.
EXTENDED FORECAST: An easterly to southeasterly breeze will flow in moisture that could spark a stray shower or two by the afternoon hours of Thursday. Outside of that, expect a mix of clouds and sun with highs in the middle 80s. A weak front will sweep through by Friday – offering a better chance for scattered storms and a slight cool down into the weekend – taking highs back to the upper 70s and lower 80s. Another front is poised to move into the region at some point next week – that could bring a risk for a few stronger storms. We’ll keep an eye out on that potential.
TROPICS: Tropical Storm Epsilon is now beginning to turn toward the northwest - while remaining southeast of Bermuda. The storm is expected to gradually strengthen to hurricane status through the next few days as it makes a close pass to Bermuda by the end of the week. In the southwest Caribbean, an area of disturbed weather has a low chance of development in the next several days, but the area should be monitor over the next week or so for the possibility of development – but nothing to worry about at this point.
