TODAY: Scattered showers will continue through the mid-morning but should begin to dissipate by early afternoon. Given the expected cloud cover today, highs will be in the 40s to near 50 south of the Golden Triangle.
TONIGHT: As high pressure tries to nose in from the north, lows will dip into the upper 30s. Watch out for some patchy fog in some areas.
FRIDAY: At least the first half of the day should be dry, but rain will gradually overspread the area by afternoon and evening. A mainly overcast sky is expected, so accordingly highs will hold in the mid to upper 40s. The rain could become locally heavy by the late afternoon into the evening, but the heaviest rain should be a little south of our coverage area towards I-20. Rain amounts up this way could approach 1″ in a lot of areas.
SATURDAY: A few showers could linger into the mid-morning, especially if you live near the MS/AL state line or into west Alabama. Some partial clearing by afternoon should help temperatures reach the upper 40s and maybe low 50s.
SUNDAY: Clouds will be on the increase once again late in the day as our next storm system begins to take shape, but no rain is expected just yet. Highs in the 50s.
MONDAY: Most of Monday should be dry, but a few showers could creep into parts of the area by the nighttime hours.
TUESDAY: A strong cold front will bring a good chance of rain and perhaps a few thunderstorms to the area. Behind this system, expect relatively colder and breezier conditions by Christmas Eve.
