Everyone has been relatively dry today with the exception of some of our southern counties. The low pressure system that brought everyone widespread rain has since moved over East Mississippi and has remained somewhat stationary. Areas that are seeing rain, are along and south of the frontal boundary, but any of those showers will quickly dissipate by evening as the low moves off to the east.

Sunday light rain is possible towards the afternoon hours, but for the most part the skies will begin to clear and we'll begin a warming spree. For the better half of next week, rain will stay in the forecast thanks to pop-up afternoon showers and increasing warm temperatures. 850 mb temperatures next week are wanting to warm us up into the upper 90s, but I think with cloud coverage and isolated rain chances temperatures will hold in the lower 90s with temperatures flirting near the mid 90s.

The best chance of rain will come towards the weekend as a frontal system tries to impact the region. With the ridge building in over our area this week and the front being weak, I don't see it weakening the ridge enough to cause any concern for another slight cool down.
