A cold front slowly sinking southward into the region is allowing for showers & cool temperatures in Central MS. Temperatures north of I-20 will struggle to lift into the mid 50s this afternoon as showers will remain likely through the evening hours. Areas along I-20 will be in-between clouds and sun, with temperatures anywhere from the mid 50s to the low 60s... A few showers will also be possible later tonight in this region. If you live in SW MS, you’ll see more sunshine than clouds & temperatures will be warming to near 70°!

Overnight, showers will shift south and fizzle out by the time we make it to Wednesday. Anticipate a mix of clouds and sun tomorrow as highs range from the low 50s to the low 60s from north to south.

Another system will be working overhead Thursday-Friday and will usher in additional waves of rain for the entire region. We’ll need the rain gear ready to go both days! Temperatures will start warm Friday morning, but as the front pushes south, temperatures will be falling through the day.

Although we’ll dry out for the most part this weekend, another low pressure system will move in Monday... We’ll notice rain chances picking up late Sunday & stick with us through early Tuesday. This one we’ll have to keep an eye on as strong storms look possible. Stay tuned for frequent forecast updates as we get closer!
