Monday, November 5 Afternoon Forecast Discussion

Clouds have been thick for us this morning and early this afternoon. Clouds have thinned a bit as a warm front lifts northward through our area. It will move into North Mississippi and could set the stage for severe storms well to our north.

A cold front will move into our area after 1am, likely making it to Interstate 20 by 6am. The good news is that the squall line along the front will be weakening as it arrives, and the only threat would be some gusty winds for many of us as our wind profile is not supportive for tornadoes. Once the rain exits by mid-morning, we should be done with rain for our Election Day.

We keep rain chances with us through Friday as a series of systems move through the area. We are looking at isolated to stray showers at best with our best chance of rain on Wednesday. Our final cold front Friday will usher in much colder temperatures heading into the weekend as highs will be near 60 on Friday and int he 50s for Saturday.

Clouds return on Monday ahead of our next cold front that looks to be here Tuesday. This one could bring our first freeze of the season and coldest temperatures so far this season.
