Rain chances taper off, dry and mild for St. Patrick's Day

Rain chances taper off, dry and mild for St. Patrick's Day

The storm will roll in Sunday with northern mountain snow showers and scattered valley rain showers.

Thursday looks partly sunny and chilly with highs in the low and mid 40s. Highs to finish the weekend will be in the mid 60s. Highs today in the mid 80s with a similar scenario for Sunday with chances of showers and highs primarily in the low 80s.


St. Patrick's Day will have the chance for isolated showers in the morning, especially across north Mississippi. Highs will be cooler in the 70s by Tuesday, the official first day of spring, with lows dipping down into the 40s by Wednesday morning. Don't worry if you don't get much rain from this storm system, a more favorable storm track will bring more rain to northeast Kansas late Sunday into early next week. The primary issue here is the threat of some strong gusty winds and small hail as storms move out of MS and western Tennessee late Friday evening. If this re-development occurs, a strong storm can not be ruled out. Overnight lows look to stay above freezing.

TUES/WED/THU: A few isolated showers possible Tuesday, otherwise dry through the mid week. Highs will peak in the 70s. This will become more scattered as we move into the afternoon and evening hours, but it's best to keep an umbrella or rain jacket handy as a brief shower could come over your area.
