Rain moves in Sunday night

COLUMBUS, Mississippi (WCBI) – Warm days will continue, even into Christmas Day, but rain chances will also be on the rise.

OVERNIGHT: Passing clouds with lows in the upper 40s to low 50s – not far from our average high temperatures for late December!

CHRISTMAS EVE: The day starts dry with sun & clouds, but clouds will slowly overspread the region by afternoon. Despite this, highs should still reach the middle & upper 60s across northeastern MS before rain arrives. After sunset, we expect steady and locally heavy rain to move into the entire area, making for a soggy night for Santa’s arrival! Rain amounts of one half to one inch look likely, and there could even be a few rumbles along the way as well.


CHRISTMAS DAY: The day starts dreary, overcast, and potentially rainy…especially early. The good news is rain should slowly move out before lunch, leaving the afternoon dry with partial clearing. Temperatures should remain in the 60s.

REST OF WEEK: Mostly dry weather returns with seasonal late December temps. Some colder (below average temps) air could move in by late week, when temperatures could struggle to reach 50 degrees.
