Thursday Morning: Waves of heavy rain and a threat for severe weather

Weather Forecasts

StormTracker Forecast…Grab the rain gear! Periods of moderate to heavy rain can be expected starting Thursday morning lasting through Friday morning, which may lead to some nuisance flooding in low-lying areas and areas prone to flooding. Rainfall totals are expected to be around 2-4″ with locally higher amounts at or greater than 4″. The path of the heaviest rains look to be in Southwest Mississippi. Also, extending into Central Mississippi and Alabama. Isolated severe storms are possible. The timing would be mainly during the afternoon and evening. Damaging winds would be the main threat, but isolated tornadoes will also be possible. Thursday will be a weather aware day! Make sure you have your severe weather safety plan ready to go, should you need to take action. Also, have multiple ways to receive warnings!

Rain will continue through tonight and it will taper through Friday morning and become more spotty during the afternoon hours. A cold front will swing in late Friday or early Saturday, which will help clear us out and dry us out for the first weekend of 2020.

A few lingering clouds into Saturday morning, but skies will clear and leave us sunny and dry with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Bright and sunny on Sunday with temperatures warming into the low to mid 60s. Rain holds off until Monday, but even then, there will only be a slight chance for a few showers. Another front comes to town, which will increase rain chances to 30% on Tuesday, and knock our temperatures down into the 50s and 60s again.
