I had lots of fun over at Holy Spirit today, speaking to the Pre-K group. I will be sharing some scenes from the visit tonight on the news. As expected, it didn’t take long for the rain to roll into the area. Even though severe thunderstorms haven’t been a problem for us today, we had dangerous cloud to ground lightning before lunchtime. A severe thunderstorms watch is in place just across the AL/MS state line in Kemper and Lauderdale Counties. Thunderstorms and showers will persist through the midnight period and the threat for rain will end as a cold front pushes through. The heaviest storms will be to our south. The front will clear the area after midnight, with clouds breaking for some sunshine tomorrow. Highs tomorrow will be near 70 degrees.
Another low pressure area will move in on Thursday and this system will bring a round of rain and thunderstorms. Some of the storms may be quite strong or severe by Thursday night. The rain and storms will linger into late Thursday night, with another break in the rain on Friday and Saturday. I have a chance of rain in the forecast for Friday, but this will mainly be for the early morning hours. The weather pattern won’t slow down, with another front bringing a shower or thunderstorm to the area Sunday night. Long range data shows another two day break on Monday and Tuesday, with rain next Wednesday. Be sure to join us tonight for more details!
