Skies will remain mostly clear this evening and lows will be right around 50 degrees. Some rural areas could be in the upper 40s by sunrise Monday morning. Either way, you can expect a pleasant evening.
Look for sunny skies and above average temperatures through most of your work week. A few clouds will float by from time to time, painting a lovely fall week. High temperatures will be in the lower 80s. Lows this week will be in the 50s.
High pressure centered near the smoky mountains will keep us dry this week. We won’t see a change in our weather until late Friday night when clouds increase and a cold front approaches the region. The rain threat begins Saturday and will continue into the early morning hours on Sunday. Temperatures will cool down substantially after the front with clearing skies Sunday and highs expected to be in the 60s.
We’re also watching a tropical disturbance over the Caribbean Sea that will likely become “Sandy” towards the end of the week. Most of the reliable model output suggests that the system will effect the eastern seaboard and no where near us here in MS and AL. It’s the same high pressure moving east and into the Atlantic that may block “Sandy” from turning out to sea, meaning that the Carolina’s would likely get a direct hit. With that said, “Sandy” is not projected to affect us here.
