Our Alert Day continues this afternoon with impacts from Ida still being felt across central MS. Heavy rain and gusty winds are still tracking across parts of the area on the northeastern side of the center of circulation. Thousands are currently without power today. Ida will weaken over time as it moves northward. We should see our weather improve through the day with Ida exiting the area later on this evening.

Areas of showers could linger overnight and into Tuesday morning with Ida nearby, but it won’t be anything like we have seen today. Sunshine should return by the PM with temperatures warming back to the mid 80′s.

Drier conditions are expected throughout the rest of the work week. We will likely see a front move in by Thursday which will help drier air move in and it will feel more comfortable out. Temperatures could also be slightly below average during this time with highs in the 80s and low in the 60s. By the weekend, we will turn more seasonal in the low 90s with the chance for some showers.
