TODAY: Mostly cloudy and chilly. Once again, highs in the upper 40s and perhaps a few spots reach 50°. Winds north at 5-10 mph. Overnight, we remain cloudy. Overnight lows drop to the mid to upper 20s.
FRIDAY: Poring over the latest model data, not much has changed in the thinking regarding our next system. Moisture will be too limited to get any precipitation in our area, but to our south, mainly along and south of a line from Meridian to Natchez. Snowflakes could mix in with rain as far south as the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Ground temperatures will remain above freezing during the event. Accumulations will be spotty at best, and will only occur on grassy and elevated surfaces. Accumulations will primarily be limited to under one half inch. There will be no travel impacts during the day on Friday anywhere in Mississippi. Again, I think it bears repeating our area will see no snow. It will just be cold. As for our area on Friday, Highs climb only into the low 40s under partly sunny skies. Overnight lows drop to the low to mid 20s. With lows dropping that far, it’s about time to think about the 3 “P”s. That’s people, pets, and pipes. Be sure all 3 are protected overnight.
SAT/SUN: Still cool, but not as cold as we head into the weekend. Highs in the low 50s Saturday and upper 40s Sunday under mostly sunny skies. Overnight lows will drop into the mid to upper 20s.
MONDAY: A brief mild day to start the work week. This warmup will be short lived, but a nice day will be in store Monday with highs around 60°. Overnight lows will remain above freezing.
TUE/WED: Back into the 40s as we head into Tuesday under partly sunny skies. Temps dive into the upper 20s overnight Tuesday. Wednesday will be cool and sunny, with highs in the low 50s.
