First Alert Forecast: Rainy Weekend Ahead!

Keep the umbrellas handy! Rain chances increase tomorrow...

It’s been a frigid start as temperatures started off in the upper 20s this morning... we will eventually lift into the mid 50s by this afternoon, making for another below-average day. Although we stay dry throughout our Thursday, rain chances pick up overnight, especially for counties north of I-20. This will be the area with the best chance for some showers for the Friday morning commute! As Friday wears on, rain chances will increase for all of us... this means a chilly rain will be possible for those Friday evening plans. Widespread rain and gusty winds move in for Saturday! Thanks to a potent low pressure system, the entire state of Mississippi could pick up anywhere from 2-4″ of rainfall by this weekend. Although we’ll see some drying out by Sunday, much colder conditions will finish out the weekend. Stay warm and dry!
