REST OF MONDAY: Quiet and bright with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s for MLK Day across central Mississippi. We'll see clouds start sneaking back into the skies by the latter half of the night with lows dropping into the upper 30s and lower 40s by early Tuesday.
TUESDAY: A stalled front will set up shop right near the I-20 corridor, splitting our forecast area with a mix of clouds and sun with highs in the 60s to near 70 possible to the south; clouds and showers north of I-20 with highs in the 50s.
WEDNESDAY: The front will stick around, though begin to fade a bit into Wednesday. Rain chances will take a backseat, though the clouds may hang around with highs in the 60s.
EXTENDED RANGE: Another sluggish moving rain maker will become more dominant Thursday and Friday - offering more widespread rain chances. We'll be well into the 60s Thursday to near 60° Friday. 1-3" possible between now and Friday, though locally heavier amounts will be possible near the frontal zones. Rain chances fade Saturday before another uptick late Sunday into Monday of next week that could offer a few stronger storms along with it.
