THURSDAY: On, off rain shower will continue to traverse through central and southwest Mississippi through the day ahead with occasional breaks, but rain trends more likely through the afternoon and evening hours. Highs will generally be in the 60s Thursday. Expect a near 100% chance overnight as an area of low pressure treks along a quasi-stationary front draped over the region.
FRIDAY - SATURDAY: Rain chances remain elevated to start off Friday - tapering into the afternoon hours. Temperatures will run in the 50s and 60s as cooler air begins to filter in the wake of the system. Drier air will sneak in - allowing for some clearing overnight Friday into Saturday. Saturday will likely be the nicest day of the weekend with rain chances near 0% and highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
EXTENDED RANGE: Rain chances will increase again ahead of our next weather maker - a warm front lift across the state Sunday - boosting temperatures well into the 60s to lower 70s. Best rain chances will be along and north of I-20 as the front lifts over the area. We'll turn breezy ahead of a cold front, due to bring rain and storms by Monday afternoon / evening. A few storms could be strong, but chances now are low, but non-zero. Highs Monday will run well into the 70s for most.
Behind that system, we'll quiet down (briefly) Tuesday ahead of an unsettled pattern amid a fast upper flow bringing disturbances over the area every couple of days, keeping clouds and rain chances commonplace.
