It’s a rainy, gloomy day as a cold front is pushing through the Deep South! Temperatures are dropping dramatically behind this front and we’ll eventually be in the low 40s/upper 30s by this evening. Expect rain and gusty winds through the rest of our Tuesday as well. A brief changeover to a wintry mix will be possible in our Lower Delta counties tonight but no impacts are anticipated!

MUCH colder conditions are on the way for the start of our Wednesday as temperatures start off near freezing and feels-like temperatures drop into the upper 20s. We will only see temperatures recover to the 50s the next couple of days before another quick moving system clips our area to the SE, bringing scattered showers back to the region Thursday into Friday.

Temperatures warm-up to near average conditions by this weekend!
