The remnants of Beta continue to exit the region to the east but clouds remain over Central and SW Mississippi as we kick off the overnight period. Temperatures won’t drop much overnight for this reason, but some eventual clearing could lead to patchy fog to start up our Saturday morning.

Although an upper level disturbance will be working its way overhead this weekend, only a stray shower will be possible for your outdoor plans. Highs will continue to warm up, topping out in the mid 80s each afternoon, with more sunshine than what we’ve seen the past couple of days.

Two cold fronts will be pushing south through the region next week, one on Monday and another into Thursday. Monday’s cold front will not only bring a drop in temperatures and dewpoints, but we’ll also see the chance for scattered showers and storms. A few gusty storms can’t be ruled out. The next cold front won’t bring rain to the area, instead it will usher in another reinforcing shot of cooler air. October looks to start about 10° below average for this reason! Morning lows in the 50s (maybe 40s!) and highs in the 70s will be common for several days in a row. Stay tuned for frequent forecast updates!
