The cold front draped across the region this afternoon is still responsible for a few showers that have developed around East Mississippi and West Alabama. Those showers will clear as we work through the evening hours and skies will thin out as well overnight, leaving us with a picture-perfect Wednesday with highs in the low to middle 80s and ample sunshine. Tomorrow will feel more like October than mid-July.
Thursday looks to remain dry but a little warmer as we return to the upper 80s. Clouds will be building late in the day ahead of our next system that will arrive on Friday. The main issue with this system is timing, as models currently have it arriving any time from just after midnight Friday morning to after sunset Friday evening.
Even with model discrepancies, I believe rain will arrive Friday around noon and be with us for most of the rest of our Friday and Saturday as wave after wave of rain moves over us. We could see one to three inches of rain by the time it starts to back off Sunday. Rain becomes more scattered Sunday and isolated Monday and Tuesday. With some breaks in the clouds developing to start next week, we should be able to climb to around 90 again for highs.
