Some Rain Friday, Strong Storms Possible Saturday

THURSDAY NIGHT: Cloudy with a few showers by sunrise. Lows in the upper 40s.

FRIDAY: Mainly cloudy with a 40-50% chance of showers.  A few storms are also possible.  Look for highs in the 60s with southerly winds developing between 5 and 15 mph.

FRIDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy and mild. Lows may only be in the upper 50s.  Some showers and storms are possible, especially close to the Tennessee border.

SATURDAY:  Mild and breezy conditions develop out ahead of a slow moving cold front headed our way.  Highs should be around 70.  There is the risk for strong to severe storms anytime from late morning through the evening.  Damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes appear to be the main concern at this time in addition to a quick 1-2″ of rain.  The ground is so saturated in our area that it won’t take much to cause some additional flooding.

SATURDAY NIGHT: Rain and storms will gradually move from north to south. Lows should fall only back into the 50s.

SUNDAY: A mix of sun and clouds is expected with hopefully no rain or storms in north MS or west AL.  Rain will still be possible across central and southern parts of the Twin States.  Highs around here will be back up to around 70.  Right now it’s looking like the best day of the weekend.

NEXT WEEK: Seasonable temperatures return for Monday and Tuesday along with some lower end rain chances.  Another big storm system may spark more strong to severe storms by Wednesday or Thursday. We’ll fine tune that after the weekend.
