Tonight – Mostly cloudy with spotty showers. Rain could be heavy at times. Lows near 61.
Tomorrow – Scattered showers and thunderstorms. Individual storms could be strong with periods of heavy rain. Skies remain cloudy. Highs near 72.
Extended – “The “rain” wheel in the sky keeps on turning”. We’ve got a couple more rounds of heavy rain before we get to the end. Luckily, the end is in sight. Expect this wet pattern to end by Saturday. An additional 1-3″ of rain is still possible for the next 48 hours. The ground remains super saturated plus we have plenty of standing water. Any additional accumulations could be an issue for more localized flooding. The National Weather Service extended our Flash Flood Watch into Saturday. Showers and thunderstorms will mainly be scattered for Friday and Saturday. Some light rain is possible Sunday with a bed of clouds.
All local rivers [Comite, Amite and Tickfaw] will at some point reach minor flooding. River levels will crest over the weekend if the forecast verifies.
Temperatures will continue to sit a few degrees below average. Daytime highs will sit in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Overnight lows for the next seven days will sit in the 50s.
A dry and stable pattern finally arrives by Sunday. Anticipate some beautiful spring weather for much of next week with minimal hazards. The sun will be out giving us plenty of time to dry out.
