(3/6/2019) Good Wednesday morning! It’s another cold morning outside with our temperatures sitting in the 20’s as you head out of the house. Be sure to layer up! You may even need some extra time to scrape ice off the windshield. We will be able to shed a few of those layers this afternoon as temperatures warm up into the lower 50’s for the high with mostly sunny skies and winds from the east. It’ll be a pleasant day, just a bit on the chilly side.
Overnight lows will drop back near freezing in the low to mid 30’s. We will begin to see clouds increase overnight with light winds from the southeast.
Tomorrow is going to finally be a warmer day with high temperatures climbing near 60° and increasing cloud cover. Skies will be mostly cloudy as winds return from the south. Rain returns to the forecast late Thursday night into early Saturday morning, spotty showers and cloudy skies can be expected Friday with highs near 70°. An early heads up for Saturday… a passing cold front will bring the chance for heavy rainfall and strong storms from east Texas through the Lower Mississippi Valley into the southeast.
The threat is still a bit far out for all the specifics, but in the ArkLaMiss, the timing of the strongest storms looks to be late morning through the afternoon. Our primary threats will be damaging winds, a few tornadoes, and 1-3″ of rainfall.
As always, we’ll continue to keep you up to date as we get closer to the weekend and learn more about this severe weather threat.
