An area of clouds moved in overnight, so lows managed to stay in the 30s this morning. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies by this afternoon and likely overcast skies soon after sunset. Highs will struggle to reach the mid 50s today.
It’s looking like rain will enter North MS from the northwest this evening and tonight. There will be scattered rain overnight, and some wet flakes of snow may mix in, but any chance of accumulation should be north of us. With temperatures only bottoming out around 37, it looks like a lot will melt before it reaches the ground.
Scattered rain and storms are likely for Friday, and some storms may produce hail.
Saturday rain also looks likely. The strongest storms will be possible for the second half of the day, but recent data suggest the biggest severe threat will be in South MS. Hail, high winds, and tornadoes are possibilities. Hopefully it will set up shop south of us (or better yet, not at all), but we are still ironing out the details of coverage, intensity, and timing.
Sunday may feature a few areas of rain, but overall, we will start the drying out process.
