Happy Tuesday! It’s a very mild morning; in fact, it will likely be in the top-5 warmest mornings for February 5 in Meridian’s recorded history! Be on the lookout for some patchy dense fog in spots this morning until about 8 a.m. Highs should make it into the low-70s today under mostly cloudy skies with scattered shower chances throughout the day. A few rumbles of thunder are also possible with some of the activity.
For the overnight hours, a few showers are possible early; otherwise expect overcast skies with more patchy dense fog possible in spots by Wednesday morning. Only stray showers will be around for our Wednesday, with rain chances not increasing again until late in the day on Thursday as a cold front approaches the area. The main activity with this frontal passage will occur overnight Thursday and into early Friday morning, with a few leftover showers possible before noon on Friday. Thunder will be difficult to come by with this frontal passage, so any storms that do develop will be below severe levels.
After getting into the upper-70s on Thursday, temperatures by Friday afternoon only look to be in the upper-40s. Clouds will linger on through the day on Friday, with partly cloudy skies arriving by Saturday. The weekend should remain dry, with temperatures climbing back to average by Sunday. Rain chances return on Monday along with highs in the upper-60s as the next storm system approaches the area.
