MONDAY: Most of the storms continue to dwindle moving into the early afternoon as much cooler air filters in from the north. A few storms could still be strong in south Mississippi through mid-afternoon. Temperatures will continue tumble in the wake of the front and on the heels of fresh northerly breeze - into the 50s. We’ll bottom out tonight in the 30s and 40s with variably cloudy skies and a few lingering showers possible - south of I-20.

TUESDAY: With the front hanging out to our south, a weak wave will slip across it, keeping clouds and a chance for scattered showers in play through the day. After the morning 30s and 40s, we’ll only rebound to the 50s by afternoon amid cool easterly flow. We’ll keep the opportunity for a few showers overnight with lows in the middle to upper 40s.

EXTENDED FORECAST: Our unsettled pattern continues with another wave forming along the residual boundary on Wednesday – kicking up an opportunity for scattered showers early in the day. Temperatures will quickly stair climb through the 70s – nearly to 80 by Friday ahead of a sweeping system due into the area Saturday. Another risk for strong storms can’t be ruled out before another cool down and settling of the pattern by Sunday and into early next week.
