COLUMBUS, Mississippi (WCBI) – After a dry stretch of weather for the last week, rain returns to the forecast tonight and tomorrow. Good news is, it will be quick and move out by Monday afternoon. In that system’s wake, clouds will diminish and we’ll be left with a pleasant work week.

Our eastern communities will have the most rain Sunday, with more dry time closer to I-55. Totals with this system will range from 0.5″-1″ with some spots exceeding 1″. Rain will keep high temperatures appreciably cooler, in the low to mid-50s.

SUNDAY NIGHT: A few showers will remain possible but otherwise they will be coming to an end. Low: 42.

NEXT WEEK: A couple of lingering showers will be around Monday morning but most will stay dry. Clouds should break in the afternoon to bring us more sunshine and raise temperatures to near 60°.
