TODAY AND TONIGHT: Temperatures start out below freezing across all of central and south Mississippi this morning. Under a sunny sky this afternoon, temperatures will warm into the mid 50s – a bit warmer than where we’ve been the last few days. Overnight, it will be cold once again but lows be just above freezing in the low and mid 30s.

THIS WEEKEND: Temperatures will warm back into the 60s Saturday afternoon with an increase in cloud cover. That is all ahead of another wave of rain coming in on Sunday. Rain will begin in the early morning and last through the afternoon and evening hours. Some of the rain on Sunday may come down heavy at times, especially south of I-20. 1-2 inches of rain is expected.

EXTENDED OUTLOOK: An unsettled weather pattern will continue into next week due to a stalled frontal boundary across the region. There will be a daily rain chance until the front finally moves its way out on Thursday. Seven day rainfall totals could easily add up to over 4 inches across central Mississippi.
