MONDAY: In the wake of Sunday’s storms, clouds have rolled back into central and southwest Mississippi to kick off the new work and school week. Expect temperatures to start off in the 70s – gradually working their way back, well into the 80s to near 90 by the afternoon hours. Clouds will break for more sunshine through the day. A few storms will be possible as well; but severe weather is unlikely. We stay warm and generally quiet overnight with lows in the 70s.
TUESDAY: Our next storm system will quickly approach the area – yielding a heavy rain signal on top of severe elements of damaging winds, large hail and a few tornadoes through the latter half of the morning through Tuesday evening in a few different waves of storm complexes. Out ahead of the storms, temperatures will warm into the 80s, stoking the fire for storms to flare up. Storms will tend to move out of the region through Tuesday evening with lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
EXTENDED PLANNER: A few lingering showers can’t be ruled out on Wednesday – but we’ll trend quiet and drier through the latter part of the work week as a stout area of high pressure settles out pattern down a bit. Expect highs in the 70s through the mid- to latter-half of the week. Chances for rain will generally hold off until Mother’s Day Sunday and the start of next week.
