First Alert Forecast: warming trend through mid-week

High clouds are filtering into the area today as temperatures lift into the low 60s for the afternoon hours... Today will be the coolest of the work week as a ridge of high pressure takes control over the region... This will allow for highs in the low-mid 70s Tuesday through Thursday before our next cold front swings through Mississippi. Expect plenty of sunshine and dry conditions in this time frame, and morning lows will be much more comfortable as well (40s/50s)!

The cold front will be moving through Friday-Saturday, bringing the chance for showers with it... The best chance to run into rain will be on Friday but stay tuned for timing updates! Drier & cooler conditions will move in to the area by the weekend.

First Alert Forecast: 70s return mid-week
