After a cool and crisp start, we will warm to the upper 70s and low 80s this afternoon with plenty of sunshine to go around. High level wispy clouds will pass overhead through the day, but that will be just about it. It won’t get as cool tonight compared to the past couple of nights/mornings. Temperatures are forecast to fall to the middle 70s under partly cloudy skies.

We will gradually get warmer and a bit humid over the weekend. Low 80s are in the forecast for Saturday and then the mid 80s by Sunday, which is seasonal for this time of year. Overall, it still will be a great weekend to spend outdoors and to even watch some football. Mainly sunny skies will also persist both Saturday and Sunday.

With high pressure building more to the east, we will continue to see high temperatures in the mid to upper 80s likely each and every day during the week ahead. Humidity levels will also be a bit higher during this time, but it won’t feel completely miserable out like it has been over the past few weeks. Besides a slight 20% chance for a few isolated showers in SW MS during the middle of the week, we will stay mainly dry over the next 7 days.
