FRIDAY: Yet another day of cold temperatures across central and southwest Mississippi. Icy patches on the roads will be likely – even in spots that may look clear or were fine yesterday after starting off deep in the 20s. We’ll trend sunny today - helping to continue the melting process as highs work their way into the middle to upper 30s north; upper 30s to lower 40s south. Wet areas will likely ice over again as lows drop into the upper 10s and lower 20s again.
WEEKEND PLANNER: A harshly cold start Saturday in the 10s and 20s with eventually, with a lot of sunshine, get into the upper 40s and lower 50s north; lower to middle 50s south – likely finishing the melting process for most areas. We’ll dip down into the upper 20s and lower 30s early Sunday morning before making a run for the upper 50s and lower 60s Sunday. Morning sunshine will give way to clouds by afternoon – a shower can’t be ruled out by late day, but chance for rain move through Sunday night into early Monday.
EXTENDED FORECAST: Monday will be a transition day – coming out of morning chances for rain to clearing skies by afternoon. Highs will top out in the lower to middle 50s. This begins our more appreciable warming trend that will take us to the middle to upper 60s by the middle of the week. A chance for rain and a few storms moves through late Wednesday through Friday.
