THURSDAY: A few lingering showers and storms are possible as the front progress farther to the south through the remainder of the afternoon hours - though the severe weather threat has come to an end. Sunshine breaks will return for some for latter part of the day with highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Tonight, skies turn mostly clear with lows in the 50s.

FRIDAY: A quiet day expected with a mostly sunny skies across the region as a weak area of high pressure nudges over Mississippi. Highs will work their way into the lower 80s. Another quick moving system will move across the region Friday night – bringing another risk for showers and storms. Severe weather looks low, but not zero – generally north of I-20.

EXTENDED FORECAST: In the wake Friday night’s system, we’ll trend cooler Saturday and Sunday amid mostly sunny skies through the weekend. Expect mostly sunny skies with highs in the 70s. Early next week will remain quiet though chances for rain and storms emerge again by late Tuesday into Wednesday.
