A weak cold front will come through our area Monday and Tuesday, bringing us slightly increased rain chances. We could certainly use some rain as many areas haven’t seen measurable precipitation so far this month. This front won’t bring us much, if any, relief from the heat as temperatures will be in the 90s through the week.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Another mostly clear and calm night, but temperatures will be a little more mild. Lows will be in the mid 60s with light southerly winds.
MONDAY: A cold front will approach the area, increasing rain chances mainly along and north of Highway 82. Areas like Tupelo, Pontotoc, and Oxford have the best chance to see some rain, but a shower or storm is possible anywhere. We’ll call it a 30% chance. Areas that don’t see rain will see plenty of sunshine through the afternoon. Highs will be right around 90, but could be slightly lower in areas that see rainfall.
TUESDAY: We’ll keep a slight chance for rain in the forecast, mainly for areas along and south of Highway 82 as the front slowly passes through the area. Rain chances will be rather limited, but a shower or storm is possible for anyone. Probably a good idea to keep the umbrella around just in case. Highs will be in the upper 80s to around 90.
WEDNESDAY-SUNDAY: Even though fall officially starts on Monday, we’ll be feeling more like summer for the end of the week with highs back into the low to mid 90s. It’s looking like rain chances will diminish after Wednesday and we’ll be in for plenty of sunshine for the rest of the week and the weekend.
