The after effects of the powerful Midwest storms will bring a few 'remnant' showers our way this morning. Overall the spotty showers will stay relatively light for the morning commute. This afternoon we'll go from a meager 20% chance of showers to a 40% chance during the evening. Muggy conditions will keep us watchful, expect highs near 80 degrees with winds from the south 10-20 mph.
Tonight the moisture content in the upper atmosphere goes on the rise, staying cloudy throughout the overnight period. There will be an outside chance of patchy fog associated with the moisture build up. Overnight lows will be in the mid 60s, and the winds from the south 10-15 mph.
Friday will be a very volatile day, or to be more specific night, of stormy weather. The daytime hours will be a build up to a storm system we've been keeping a close eye on since the first one that cause several deaths in the mid west. This one is expected to hit Friday afternoon and evening - the focus to our north. However we could see this system dip a little further south and cause us concern for severe weather and perhaps tornado activity. Wednesday's storms produced an EF-4 tornado that stayed on the ground for 22 miles, this one could be just as deadly to the mid west and north Mississippi. We'll keep you posted on wlbt.com, facebook and twitter.
