Wednesday Afternoon Forecast Update

I had a great time out at Taylorville Primary School earlier, speaking to all the kids at the Summer Day Camp. I want to thank the directors for the invitation and the students for telling some great weather stories…that’s always a highlight of the visits! The weather around here hasn’t changed much of-course. The only change to really tell you about today was a slight fall in the daytime high temperatures. Highs have been in the lower 90s for many areas and the closest thundershower has been just outside of meridian, MS. Tonight we’ll have gradual clearing, with lows in the middle 60s.

Tomorrow we will have more of the same, with a sunny start to the day and a partly sunny afternoon. A stray shower or thunderstorm can’t be ruled out, but many spots will stay dry through tomorrow night. Over the weekend we won’t even be talking about stray thundershowers. In fact, we’ll be talking more about the Stage 4-Drought currently in place. Highs will soar into the upper 90s for Saturday and Sunday, with lows at night dipping into the muggy 60s.

It still looks like scattered thunderstorms and showers will return to our forecast on Tuesday as an upper air trough heads for the state. This will send a cold front into Alabama by next Wednesday. Hopefully this system will have the right combination of moisture and lift to produce some needed rainfall.
