A cold front is working through central Mississippi and will pass through our area through the overnight hours. Rain showers are starting to develop south of I-20 back to our west, and it appears our greatest rain chance will be overnight. Rainfall amounts should not exceed half an inch, and skies will begin to clear Thursday afternoon.
This all sets the stage for a much cooler Friday with highs int he mid 70s and lows around 50. Friday should be dry, but a question remains on Saturday as to if rain makes it back this far north. Models are in disagreement with the handling of this system, but it appears more likely that any rain that lifts northward may have difficulty making it much further north than Highway 84. We will keep an eye for the weekend., but regardless if rain makes it to all of us, Sunday will be dry as sunshine returns with highs in the mid 70s.
Our next question mark in terms of weather maker will be on Tuesday when a cold front could approach from the northwest. The question will be if there is enough moisture to cause rain showers. For now, I will give just a small chance of rain for Tuesday, but in the long term, it looks like the end of next week will see the coldest readings of the season so far with highs potentially struggling to make it into the lower 70s.
