Surface high-pressure is expected to slide to the east to the Mid-Atlantic States later today as the return flow for the gulf coast will begin. This will allow for surface temperatures to begin rebounding. An upper level trough will move across the Rockies today and southern Plains and the Mid-South Saturday with a trailing cold front to move through the area Saturday evening/night.
The cold front will bring cloudy skies and rain Saturday with the slight possibility for very isolated thunderstorms Saturday afternoon. The associated cold front will knock down temps to slightly below normal Sunday and Monday and maintain a dry forecast Sunday through the middle of next week. Thursday will bring a good chance of rain across the south half of Mississippi with the next system.
