First Alert Forecast: rain chances return, trending cooler late week
Trending Cooler Through Late Week (Source: WLBT)

Showers and storms have mainly impacted our SW counties so far today, but there is the chance for some of that activity to impact areas along I-20 through the afternoon/early PM hours. Coverage will be more isolated in these areas compared to SW MS! Highs this afternoon will reach the low 80s, but this is the last of our warm days...

A front that has been stalled out to our north and west will eventually push through on Wednesday. This will increase our rain and thunderstorm chances, especially in the morning and midday hours, & lower our temperatures. Highs will barely reach 70 degrees tomorrow afternoon, and a few gusty storms south of I-20 will be possible.

Scattered showers overnight into Thursday morning are expected once again before we catch a quick break from the rain Thursday. Our unsettled pattern will allow for additional showers and storms Friday. Isolated showers will be possible this weekend as well, but chances are much lower. Temperatures will start in the low 50s and only top out in the upper 60s/near 70° both Saturday and Sunday!
