THURSDAY: Clouds will continue to hold over the region underneath the upper low swirling overhead. A chilly, blustery day with occasional showers accompanying the clouds with temperatures in the 40s and 50s. Clouds will hold overnight, though shower chances will tend to fade. Lows will fall to the upper 30s.
FRIDAY-SATURDAY: We'll probably remain cloudy with occasional drizzly spots for Friday with highs in the 40s. Clouds could break late in the day as drier air filters in from the north. Skies should turn mainly clear overnight with lows in the upper 20s and lower 30s. Saturday remains quiet with highs in the 40s with mostly sunny skies.
POSSIBLE WINTRY WEATHER: Our attention turns to late Sunday into Monday. As a whole Sunday should be quiet - but we'll be watching trends to our west on how this system will approach the area.
Three different scenarios could play out with the low pressure placement that could yield different results.
Given the current trends; we are teetering on the edge of scenario #2 and #3 with marginal temperatures to support the wintry weather potential. This could be a situation where we have a swath of wintry weather across part of the area, while the other zones could be with a cold rain. At any rate, the possibility of wintry weather continues to increase for late Sunday into Monday for parts of Mississippi.
In the system's wake, we'll gradually trend milder - back into the 50s by the mid-late week as we trend quiet and dry again.
