Showers and storms have popped across portions of East Mississippi and West Alabama. These showers and storms will remain pop-up to isolated in nature through the afternoon and evening hours. A thunderstorm complex to our northwest will swing our direction but have lost most, if not all, of its punch by the time it gets here in the early evening hours. Rain will collapse after sunset, although we could see a morning shower for locations south of Interstate 20.
Saturday and Sunday will continue the isolated to scattered rain chances, with Sunday being the best shot for a lot of us to see rain. Rain chances start to drop as we move into the middle of next week as some cooler and drier air arrives from our northwest.
Highs through the weekend will remain in the lower to middle 90s, but drop to about 90 by next Thursday as a cooler and drier air mass arrives. It is too early to say just how cool and how long we get a break from the heat and humidity, but it does not look favorable for a lengthy cool down across the area.
