SATURDAY: There will be a bit of a lull in the heavy rain late through early afternoon but showers are still possible. Additional heavy showers and storms will develop by the evening and they will continue into the night. Some of the storms this evening and tonight may be severe with large hail (primary threat) and wind gusts over 60 mph (secondary threat). The risk of tornadoes continues to be centered across parts of central and southern MS & AL (see graphic). Highs should manage to climb back into the upper 50s and lower 60s today.
SUNDAY: Rain will linger for some of you on Sunday, but brighter skies will return by the end of the day. Breezy WNW winds are expected to develop in the wake of this system and they will help to dry things out. Cooler air will filter in during the afternoon hours so look for temperatures to hold in the mid-low 50s. Lows Sunday night will be crisp and in the lower 30s.
NEXT WEEK: Expect a cooler and drier trend next week. Plan on a good deal of sunshine Monday – Friday with below average high and low temperatures.
