TUESDAY: The front, stalled, over the area will lift back northward as a warm front through the latter parts of the day. Still - a few showers will be possible through the afternoon hours, though most will remain quiet and dry. Highs will top out in the middle to upper 80s. Skies may clear for a few hours overnight before clouding back over with lows in the upper 60s and lower 70s.

WEDNESDAY: Clouds loom over the area to start off the day – though, similar to the past several days, sunny breaks will come along through, helping to warm up the atmosphere. We’ll work from the upper 60s and lower 70s to the middle and upper 80s yet again.

EXTENDED FORECAST: Our stretch of above average temperatures remains through the end of the work week ahead. While a rogue shower or two could develop Thursday – more so, late Friday into early Saturday as a stronger cold front approaches the area. Behind the front, a nice push of crisp, fall air will find itself draped over central and southwest Mississippi to head into the start of next week. We’ll see highs in the 80s drop to the 70s with overnights, mainly, in the 50s into early next week.
