It's a picture perfect day across the Mid South with plentiful sunshine and temperatures in the 70s. That will change as we approach Thursday.
An area of low pressure with accompanying cold front will push eastward Thursday bringing a threat of showers, thunderstorms and the possibility of severe weather. This event will be short lived and feature strong damaging winds and the possibility of large hail. By the time this system clears our region, it will leave Friday looking absolutely spectacular!
Tonight, clear to partly cloudy skies with a low of 55. Wind from the southeast at 3-8 mph.
Thursday will feature partly sunny skies with showers and thunderstorms possible during the late afternoon, but primarily into Thursday night. Thursday's high 81 with gusty southerly wind at 10-18 mph. Showers and thunderstorms Thursday night with a low near 56.
Friday, skies becoming mostly sunny with a high of 79.
Why are we taking such a close look at next weeks weather? Sunday night and Monday offer up another chance for strong showers, and it will be turning a bit cooler for the middle of next week.
