Rain has been slow to arrive today across East Mississippi and West Alabama, that in association with warmer than expected temperatures, created a favorable environment for some isolated heavy thunderstorms to develop. Most of the convection at this hour has since moved off to the northeast and behind it muggy and patchy fog can be expected. Overnight tonight, lingering showers will still be a possibility, but for the most part the widespread showers are over. Overcast skies tonight will hold our temperatures near the mid 70s tonight.
As we transition to Sunday and Monday clouds will slowly begin to decrease throughout the day and scattered showers can be expected, as the upper level low exits out of the area. By Monday, the rain becomes more of a daytime heating event and most locations should top out in the low 90s.
Starting Labor Day, upper level ridging once again begins to build in over the southeast. Not only can highs during the day expect to reach the mid 90s most days next week, but heat indices at or above 100 degrees can be expected. Monday thru the weekend, rain chances will stay low in the 10 to 20 percent chance range thanks to daytime heating.
