Today’s weather will be much calmer here in central MS. Clouds continue to linger across parts of the area from Ida, but we should see them gradually clear out with skies turning brighter as Ida pulls farther away from our area. Although a few showers are possible today, we should see drier conditions for our Tuesday. Expect highs this afternoon in mid and upper 80s. A few spots could see the low 80s off to the east.

Wednesday will likely be more of a summery day where it will be hot and humid in the 90s with a few spotty showers and storms possible. A front is forecast to drop in by Thursday with high pressure building in behind which will help usher in drier air for the end of the work week. During this time, we are expecting highs in the mid and upper 80s with overnight lows in the 60s. More seasonal temperatures should return by Labor Day Weekend in the low 90s with isolated shower chances.

Tropical Depression Kate is very disorganized today and will stay out over the Atlantic through the week. A disturbance in the eastern tropical Atlantic has a high chance for development and will likely form into our next tropical depression by today or tomorrow. We are also closely monitoring a disturbance in the southern Caribbean that has a low chance for tropical formation right now.
