Scattered Storms Expected to Start the Labor Day Weekend

FRIDAY: Look for a few scattered showers and storms during the afternoon hours. A few could linger into the early evening. Some high school football games could be affected but most games will probably start on schedule. Highs look to be around 90 but temperatures will fall into the 80s and 70s during the evening. Winds will be from the southeast between 5 and 10 mph.

FRIDAY NIGHT: Aside from a stray shower, we’ll call it partly cloudy with lows in the upper 60s and low 70s.

SATURDAY: We’ve upped the chances a touch, as a few scattered showers and storms are now expected.  The best chance appears to be along and south of US-82, but even a few isolated to scattered storms are expected between US 82 and the Tennessee border.  Coverage will lessen during the early evening hours and that should lower the rain threat for the MSU home opener in Starkville. Afternoon highs will be around 90 with easterly winds between 5 and 10 mph.

SUNDAY-WEDNESDAY: We still anticipate a few isolated to perhaps scattered storms  each day. Highs should be in the low 90s with overnight lows staying in the low 70s.

TROPICS:  An unorganized disturbance near Puerto Rico is drifting WNW.  There is a slight chance it may try to organize as it approaches the eastern Gulf by early next week.  We’ll continue to monitor it. If nothing else it may provide areas closer to the coast enhanced rainfall by the middle of next week.
