  • Wednesday Forecast: Warm, Pleasant, Passing Clouds

    TODAY: Expect a mostly sunny sky this afternoon across the area with highs in the low to mid 80s across northeast Mississippi, with the low 80s expected in far northern areas. Clouds could locally increase across the northwest part of the state this afternoon, but everywhere should stay dry.

    TONIGHT: A shower is possible towards Oxford and the northwest quarter of the state this evening as a disturbance moves in from the northwest. Elsewhere, expect a mainly fair sky with lows in the mid 60s.

    THURSDAY: That disturbance could trigger an additional couple of showers along the I-55 corridor/our western counties during the afternoon hours, but the Golden Triangle and northeast MS should stay dry as highs reach the mid 80s once again.

    FRIDAY – SATURDAY: These will be relatively nice days with lots of sunshine during the afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 80s after pleasant starts to the day with temperatures in the low to mid 60s. Area football games Friday night and Saturday look pretty comfortable with no chance of rain. The exception to that rule is in Baton Rouge Saturday night for the SEC-West showdown between MSU and LSU where there is a risk for a passing shower or storm with much more muggy conditions.

    SUNDAY – MONDAY: Remnant energy of Tropical Storm Odile will eventually get absorbed by an eastward-advancing trough of low pressure, and said trough will actually get a little more amplified thanks to these remnants. What this means for us is a chance of scattered showers and storms with an approaching front Sunday into Monday. By Monday afternoon, this front should be south of our area as much drier air filters in behind it.

    TUESDAY: It remains unclear as to how long this dry air will stick around, but for now Tuesday looks like a beautiful day with ample sunshine, low humidity, and near perfect temperatures…that is if you like highs in the low 80s and morning lows in the upper 50s!
