Tuesday, February 12 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Tuesday! Rainfall, with a few embedded thunderstorms, is pushing through Mississippi this morning. Rain will start to begin in our area at around 5 a.m., and will taper-off from west to east through the early afternoon. Though locally heavy rainfall is possible at times, the system is moving fast enough that there is no concern for flash flooding, though ponding on roadways is still a possibility. Severe weather is not expected with this frontal passage, but a few storms could have gusty winds associated with them.

Skies will begin clearing during the early evening hours, so we may even see some sun before it sets. It’ll be chilly, but seasonal, morning Wednesday as temperatures drop off into the mid-30s. Wednesday will certainly be the best day weather-wise, with high temperatures in the low-60s and plenty of sunshine to go around.

Daily rain chances will be with us during the Thursday through Monday timeframe, with stray showers possible Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Better rain chances will be with us for Friday and Monday, with isolated showers possible. Highs will go up and down during this timeframe, with temperatures as warm as the upper-60s on Friday, and mid-50s on Monday.
