It has been a fantastic late July day across East Mississippi and West Alabama thanks to lower temperatures and very low humidity. There have been some clouds passing through, thanks to a weak boundary sliding southward through the Twin States. Clouds will thin out overnight, but we may keep a high cloud or two towards morning. Lows tonight look to break the record low of 60 set back in 1897. We could also break Thursday mornings low which is 62.
Highs on Wednesday look to only climb into the middle 80s. High clouds will start to stream into the area late Wednesday, signaling the return of moisture to the area. Clouds will thicken up a bit on Thursday with a late day shower or storm possible. The best chances for rain the next seven days will be Friday and Saturday.
Heading into the weekend, a couple of impulses will slide through the area. These impulses will provide some lift over top a mild and increasingly muggy air mass to promote some showers and storms. As of now, coverage of rain does not look to be great thanks to below normal temperatures and humidity. Rain chances for a pop-up shower or storm will remain in the forecast through next week, but most of us will remain dry each day.
Highs will return to 90 as we start next week as our air mass starts to warm back up.
Elsewhere, the tropical wave in the eastern Atlantic looks poised to become a tropical depression later today or tomorrow. For a forecast track of the wave, visit our hurricane page of our webchannel.
