SUMMER HAS ARRIVED!
We may see a shower or two somewhere in northeast Mississippi and west Alabama during the afternoon and evening hours on Monday and Tuesday. After that, things will dry out and warm up. This is good news for the Mississippi Delta, who is still dealing with the ongoing backwater flood.
MONDAY NIGHT: Clouds will decrease in number Monday night as temperatures drop down into the middle and upper 60s.
TUESDAY: Summer-like warmth will remain across the area on Tuesday. As we move into the afternoon and evening hours, we could see a stray shower develop somewhere in the region. Winds will be a little breezy on Tuesday, sustained out of the southeast between 10 and 15 MPH. Gusts could reach as high as 20 MPH. Highs on Tuesday will top out in the lower 90s, with overnight lows dropping back down into the upper 60s.
WEDNESDAY,THURSDAY & FRIDAY: As we head into the middle of the work-week, our rain chances will completely vanish as high pressure builds in from the southeast. This will bring us more sunshine and warmer temperatures. Highs will climb from the lower 90s on Wednesday to the the middle 90s by Friday. Overnight lows will remain in the upper 60s as we close out the work-week.
SATURDAY & SUNDAY: Dry and hot conditions will stick around through the Memorial Day weekend. We could have a few more clouds on Saturday, but that will not keep our temperatures from warming into the middle 90s! Those middle 90s will return for Sunday, too. If you have any outdoor activities planned this weekend, be sure to practice sun safety! You will most definitely need the sunscreen. Overnight lows will range from the upper 60s to the lower 70s.
MEMORIAL DAY: Memorial Day looks to remain dry across our region. We will have some clouds across the region, but we are not anticipating any rain at this time. Highs will vary between the middle and upper 90s on Monday! Be sure to stay cool, and stay hydrated.
