MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Some late-spring chill greeted us on Friday morning, and we’ll be chilly again first thing Saturday morning, too.

Threefoot Festival Forecast

Other than that slight chill, the weather is perfect for the Threefoot Festival. It starts tonight. Expect a mostly clear sky tonight with temperature easing back from mid-70s around the 6 PM start time to near 60 by the 10 PM end. You may want a little something to cover your arms after the sun sets if you chill easily. Saturday will be bright and sunny. Sunscreen is a necessity. The festival starts in the lower 70s around 10 AM and warms to the upper 70s and lower 80s through the afternoon.

Our Next 24 Hours

This evening will be mostly clear. We will cool to the low-to-mid 60s by 10 PM. The rest of tonight will be clear. The low temperatures will be in the lower 50s. Saturday will be sunny with high temperatures near 80 degrees. Weather looks good to get that yard work done, but the high sun angle means a high UV index and a high need for sunscreen.

Rain Returns

The weekend will stay dry, but the chance for rain will ease back into the forecast starting Monday. Spotty-to-scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible, especially in the afternoons, each day from Monday through Friday. There’s no guarantee that we will all get rain, but we will all be fair game for the rain. It’s a good week to keep the umbrella in the back seat. There are no strong indications of severe weather, but any time we have thunderstorms with temperature in the 80s, damaging wind gusts can occur with little or no advance warning.
