Hot temperatures and rain to begin the week

Warm weather is expected ahead of increasing rain and storm potential by midweek

COLUMBUS, Mississippi (WCBI) – It will be a quiet and calm end to the weekend here in Northeast Mississippi with some passing clouds and mild temperatures holding steady throughout the night. The weather pattern will not be staying so calm heading into the work week though! Heat begins to rebuild starting tomorrow, and the chance to see rain with a few thunderstorms increases by midweek.

TONIGHT: Temperatures are expected to be in the mid 70s tonight with a calm wind. Most everyone will see a mostly cloudy sky tonight, but a couple of isolated showers could squeeze out overnight and early tomorrow morning.

TOMORROW: Expect a cloudy start to the morning. The cloud coverage should begin to thin out by noon, but there is a chance for scattered rain showers to form in the early afternoon and lasting through the evening hours.
