Already seeing a few passing showers in northeast Mississippi this afternoon as the cold front gets a little closer. We are seeing a little break from the rain in the short term but it will return as we heading into the overnight hours.
Rain will try to slide into North MS overnight into Saturday morning and make it farther south during the day. Yes, the rain chance on Saturday is fairly high, but that does not mean it’s going to rain all day. The farther south of Hwy 82 that you travel, especially toward I-20, it may be the afternoon before you get any wet weather, should you receive it at all.
Rain amounts of 1-2 inches are possible for Saturday (though not everyone will get that), and thunder storms that are able to form may bring winds over 60 mph and small hail. These would qualify as severe storms.
For the places that don’t see rain until the afternoon, highs will have a chance to get into the 70s. Don’t expect a whole lot of sun, though.
Sunday is looking a littler drier, though there will be scattered rain in the area.
Monday will give you a chance to dry out, and highs will hover around 80.
