Thanksgiving Weekend: Mild, Mostly Dry Until Sunday
THANKSGIVING DAY: Partly cloudy, breezy, and mild conditions take hold of the entire region. Afternoon highs should once again be in the upper 60s to low 70s. Southeasterly breezes between 10 and 15 mph with gusts to 20 mph will continue.
FRIDAY: Another mild day is in store with daytime highs around 70. Clouds are going to be more numerous but dry conditions look to hold for our area. No issues are expected for high school football with temperatures hovering in the low 60s and/or upper 50s during the evening.
SATURDAY: The 3rd day of the long holiday weekend is looking just as mild as the first 2. Plan on highs around 70 under mostly cloudy skies. The odds of rain are just 10% and that would figure to be late in the evening if it occurs. The Egg Bowl should remain dry with a kickoff temperature about 62°. Upper 50s are likely by the 4th quarter.
SUNDAY: Numerous rain showers are in the forecast as a cold front eases into north Mississippi and west Alabama. The chance of rain is high at 60%. Highs should be in the mid 60s.
NEXT WEEK: Shower chances continue through Tuesday. Drier and cooler conditions are possible by the middle to end of the week.
