Warm Weekend With Sct’d Storms Possible
FRIDAY NIGHT: Variably cloudy and quiet. Some patchy fog is possible with lows in the 50s.
SATURDAY: We’re expecting a partly to mostly cloudy day but that still means some sun should be had. Warmer highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s remain on track. While a few showers and storms may pop during the day it doesn’t look like it’ll be an all day washout or anything like that. There is the potential for a batch of strong storms during the evening across northern Mississippi. Hail and damaging wind gusts should be the primary concern if they actually do develop.
SATURDAY NIGHT: While a few early night storms are possible the overnight hours should be pretty quiet in most spots. Milder lows in the 60s are expected.
SUNDAY: Additional showers and storms are possible during the heating of the day. Once again most locations will not experience an all day washout. The most widespread and/or strongest activity could end up waiting until the late afternoon or evening hours. Highs top out around 80. A wildcard scenario would include a big batch of storms close to the Coast that could end up limiting the number of storms this far north. It’s something worth watching out for.
SUNDAY NIGHT: The chance of rain and storms will continue as an area of low pressure moves into the region. Lows bottom out in the 60s.
MONDAY: Another round or two of storms is possible. Temperatures dip back into the 70s.
TUESDAY-WEDNESDAY: Reasonably quiet weather returns along with seasonably warm highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s. Lows dip back a bit into the 50s.
THURSDAY: A stronger cold front is slated to move in during the day. This front may have more upper level support with it and that may allow more strong storms to form. It’s too early to tell if the front will have enough moisture to work with so we’ll keep watching. Highs should be around 80.
