Starting off the morning, we'll stay clear of clouds and relatively light winds; but that will change.
This afternoon the winds are expected to pick up momentum, 10-25 mph winds, particularly in the northwest corner of the state. Wind advisories have been issued for several counties in north and northwest Mississippi, high of 85 degrees.
Tonight the cloud cover will begin to bulk up as a front approaches us from the northwest, bringing a chance of rain with it. Early model runs indicate strong storms are likely by the 10:00pm hour, some possibly severe in north Mississippi.
Temps will drop to the lower 50s, and winds active from the southeast at 10-15 mph, shifting north.
Thursday expect stormy weather before the sun rises, early morning commute will be a bit messy - especially east. Temps will only climb into the 70s as the front pushes through.
And the winds will die down by mid morning - allowing for a quiet end of the work week. Watch out for a bit of a chill in the early morning hours over the weekend, we'll dip to the 40s.
