Even as clouds continue to increase across the area this afternoon, temperatures are still climbing into the low-mid 80s. A few stray showers are possible, but most will stay dry through Monday.

A disturbance will be moving overhead Tuesday and will increase our storm chances, especially during the midday-early evening hours. A few strong to severe storms will be possible in this time frame in our Central MS counties.

Later this week, a cold front will usher in another opportunity for scattered showers and storms Wednesday into Thursday. A few of those could be strong-severe as well. Cooler temperatures will return for the weekend with periods of rain remaining in the forecast each day through the end of the 7-day forecast!
