Occasional storms continue through the weekend
COLUMBUS, Mississippi (WCBI) – Warm, muggy weather keeps daily storm chances in the forecast the next several days.
FRIDAY: Scattered showers and storms will again develop, this time in the vicinity of I-55/MS River – over west-central MS. However, some of these could develop south to southeast into parts of northeast/east MS later in the day. Expect highs well into the 80s.
WEEKEND: The pattern remains unsettled, but that doesn’t mean a complete washout either day. A disturbed northwest flow aloft could allow for several clusters of storms to move in from the north. Unfortunately, timing these out remains very difficult; therefore, plan on plenty of dry time, but be ready for a storm at just about any time Saturday or Sunday. Highs both days will reach the 80s, though Sunday looks a bit warmer in the upper 80s.
NEXT WEEK: Isolated storms stay possible Monday, but it looks like drier and increasingly hotter weather will be the rule into mid-week. Afternoon highs may surpass 90 degrees by Wednesday.
