ALERT DAY: TD Cristobal continues to impact central Mississippi
Main threats: Gusty winds, heavy rain, & brief tornadoes
ALERT DAY MONDAY: Tropical Depression Cristobal continue to push farther north and west, though impacts will still be felt across the region through the day. Expect periods of rain, storms amid gusty winds (upward of 40 mph) and the possibility of a few spin-up tornadoes through the afternoon and evening hours. Rain and storms will exit gradually later tonight as Cristobal’s center moves closer to the Mid-South.
MID-WEEK: A change in air masses will be on the way as a front is expected to sweep through the region late Tuesday and early Wednesday. Tuesday will be hot and breezy - with highs in the lower 90s. The front will spark a few showers and storms as it moves through, then ushers in a drier air mass through Wednesday.
EXTENDED FORECAST: In the wake of the front, drier air will filter in from the north through remainder of the work week. That - coupled with high pressure moving in will keep sunshine in play throughout the week. Expect highs in the middle and upper 80s into the weekend with sunny to mostly sunny skies and tolerable humidity levels as we move closer to mid-June.
