The nearly perfect weather trend we’ve enjoyed over the last few days is finally changing. A warm front is creeping closer in the Northern Gulf along with a weak tropical wave, but another approaching front will limit any tropical development. It won’t however limit the moisture associated with that wave, so rainfall totals will be higher as this cluttered system moves through.
Averages are right now in the 4-5″ range for parts of Mississippi, but higher localized totals are certainly possible if we see any “training” occurring.
The rain will continue through Friday and into the first half of Saturday. By sunset on Saturday though we should begin seeing rapid clearing as the front moves away. Scattered clouds will linger into Sunday, but we’re heading for more cool fall afternoons with plenty of sunshine and low rain chances next week.
