The cold front that passed through the area yesterday is now to our south, and will remain there through the weekend. The front to our south and high pressure in control at the surface and above the surface will mean a virtually rain free weekend with little to no pop-up storms expected. Humidity values will start to increase on Saturday, reaching a maximum on Sunday, with heat indices for the weekend near or above 100 degrees.
Our next cold front arrives on Monday, and just like the one yesterday, looks to yield only marginal rain and storms as it passes through the area. Behind it, much cooler and drier air from Canada will surge southward into the Twin States, leaving us with another late summer/early fall preview in July.
The cool weather looks to hang around through the rest of next week, with August also starting off on the cool side as highs will attempt to rebound to near 90 by this time next week. The only significant rainfall in the forecast is Monday's cold front.
The Neshoba County Fair, minus the heat this weekend and rain Monday, looks to have one of the best weather weeks in recent memory...if not ever.
