Thursday, August 14 Forecast Discussion

Another picture perfect day across East Mississippi and West Alabama as high pressure remains firmly in control. The light winds and dry air has allowed cool starts to the day and comfortable afternoons, and one more cool start lies ahead.

Temperatures tonight will drop into the upper 50s once again as the driest air of this air mass is currently in place. Light winds from the north overnight, which have been bringing in the cooler and drier air, will shift to light west winds tomorrow, starting to return the heat and humidity. Highs should just crack 90 tomorrow under lots of sunshine but a few clouds will dot the sky through the afternoon hours.

Temperatures really warm up on Saturday as we return to the middle 90s and humidity starts to fully return. It will start to feel more like August with the mugginess back in the air, but rain will stay away for one more day.

Starting on Sunday, a cold front will stall to our north in north Mississippi, providing the focusing mechanism needed for showers and storms to develop each afternoon. Storms will only be isolated in coverage as an upper level ridge will attempt to stop widespread rain chances. Highs will remain in the middle 90s, lows in the 70s, and isolated rain chances all stay in the forecast through the end of next week.
