Hurricane Sally continues to threaten the Gulf Coastline today and tomorrow as the storm is expected to make landfall Wednesday morning. Areas to our SE will be dealing with the brunt of this system, with storm surge and flooding the main concerns... Locally, we can expect breezy conditions & a few bands of heavy rain today and tomorrow. Fortunately, we’re far enough west from the center of circulation that extreme impacts are not in the forecast for Central and SW Mississippi!

Although we have a front stalled out over the area today, we have yet another cold front that will push south of the region by the end of the week... This will usher in dry and below-average conditions Friday through the end of the 7-day forecast! Lows could even drop as low as near 60° Sunday through Tuesday morning, with parts of the state waking up to the 50s! Stay tuned for continued updates.

First Alert Forecast: steamy, breezy Tuesday; occasional rain bands possible
