SATURDAY: We’ll enjoy a mild day overall with highs in the 70s.  Rain chances will increase by late morning as a cold front enters our area.  The best chance of rain in the WCBI coverage area will be between about 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.  While a few gusty showers & storms are possible, we still don’t envision any widespread strong to severe storms.  Winds are going to be strong all day long, initially from the southwest then switching to the northwest behind the front.  Some gusts may be over 30 mph at times.  A few showers are possible by the end of the Alabama football game in Tuscaloosa and dry conditions should take over in Oxford prior to the Ole Miss game at 6 p.m.

SATURDAY NIGHT:  The unsettled weather will clear out in the wake of the cold front. Lows will be in the in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

SUNDAY:  Wall-to-wall sunshine is on track with high pressure moving in.  Breezy winds from the northwest between 10 and 15 mph will keep a fall chill going all day long so be prepared.

SUNDAY NIGHT:  Clear, calm, and cold conditions are more or less guaranteed at this point. Widespread lows in the mid to upper 20s are likely all around the area.  It’s looking like the coldest night of the season thus far.

NEXT WEEK:  Forecast confidence has improved and it now appears as though we’ll enjoy a rather sunny and unseasonably cool week.  No issues are expected for travel before or during the long holiday weekend.
