First Alert Forecast: Wrapping up 2019 seasonable & dry!

After an active Sunday, yesterday’s cold front has pushed east of the area and high pressure is sliding in from the west. The NWS will continue surveying damage today and we will pass along any tornado confirmations... Here’s the first one confirmed out of NE Madison/NW Leake/S Attala Counties:

We are much calmer and cooler today! Highs will only reach the mid-upper 50s this afternoon with dry conditions taking us into the start of the New Year.

Temperatures will start off in the 30s the next couple of mornings, making it necessary to bring the coat along to any NYE plans you may have tomorrow night. Clouds will pick back up ahead of our next low pressure system New Year’s Day as high pressure moves east of the region.

Eventually rain will return to the area Thursday into Friday as temperatures gradually warm back into the 60s. Seasonable and dry conditions return for the weekend. Enjoy the last few days of 2019!
