A cold front is slowly pushing southward today, leading to spotty showers mainly along the I-20 corridor. Temperatures this afternoon will range from the upper 60s to the lower 80s from north to south due to this cold front... As we get into Tuesday, this front will lift back off to the north as a warm front and will bring NE MS the chance for severe weather. We’ll just be warm and breezy locally!

A few thunderstorms will be possible tomorrow evening as that front moves southward again, but severe weather is not expected at this time.

We dry out and warm up BIG TIME for the middle and end of the work week! Highs will reach near record levels, topping out in the upper 80s! A cold front scheduled to move in at the start of the weekend will quickly take us back to average by the end of the 7-day forecast and will bring us a scattered shower and thunderstorm chance for Saturday.
