THURSDAY: Rainy periods will be around to kick off the day across parts of central Mississippi on a scattered to numerous coverage basis. While the severe weather risk remains low – it's not zero and will be something to monitor through the day. Flash flooding will also be a concern for areas, mainly, north of I-20, where current rains and recent rains are/have put copious amounts of water. Expect highs, generally, in the 80s; though a few spots could eek out 90. Lows will drop into the 70s as storm chances fade through early evening.
FRIDAY: High pressure will nudge in slightly – yielding lower opportunities for rain and storms with highs around 90 amid a mix of sun and clouds. Humidity levels will help push ‘feels like’ temperatures closer to 100. Storms that are able to flare up will tend to fade after sunset with lows in the lower to middle 70s.
EXTENDED FORECAST: A disturbance may drop through Saturday – bringing another uptick in rain opportunities – tending to drop rain chances for Sunday as a boundary slips farther south. All the while – temperatures this weekend will run closer to the lower and middle 90s – feeling like the lower 100s. Another front will approach the region through mid-next week, ushering in cooler and drier air.
