A couple of days of sunshine is what's on tap for today and Friday for the most part. High pressure will keep the skies clear and the mild warming trend will make it almost feel like a summer day. Highs will peak near the 80 degree mark; southeast winds at 10-15 mph.
The low will track along the coast and into Alabama Saturday. Heavy storms are possible across south Mississippi, with severe weather likely in Eastern Mississippi.
Gusty winds will develop over our region, with clouds and lighter rain showers throughout Saturday in central Mississippi.
The low will depart Saturday night. Morning clouds on Sunday will give way to some sunshine by afternoon. A cool north wind will keep temperatures below normal Sunday into Monday.
I invite you to come out to Cowboy Maloney in Flowood from 3pm-6pm on Thursday. I'll be there, along with meteorologists from the National Weather Service, to program weather radios.
If you don't have a weather radio, you can pick one up at the store for about $30. There is also a portable weather radio available for purchase. If you already have a weather radio, we're happy to check the programming for you. Hope to see you there!
