LOOKING AHEAD: A few showers and storms will continue throughout most of our Friday afternoon. An isolated severe thunderstorm can’t be ruled out with strong winds being the primary concern with periods of heavy rainfall possible. By the afternoon, conditions will quiet down and the cold front itself will sweep across the ArkLaMiss from Friday evening into Saturday morning. The will bring in some cooler air and drop out temperatures for the long weekend.
A small disturbance will move in behind the cold front, bringing lift for a few more showers and storms to develop for Saturday. So far, no severe weather is expected for Saturday. The rest of our long weekend will be mostly dry under partly cloud skies. Highs will be slightly cooler in the lower to middle 80s with lows falling into the lower 60s at night.

Have a great Thursday!
