PINE BELT, MS (WDAM) - Tuesday will feature an extra few showers and storms in the area. Highs will be in the upper 80s. Severe weather isn’t anticipated as the upper-level winds aren’t sufficient for sustaining anything more than just typical summer storms. Look for heavy rain, lightning and gusty wind as the main threats with these storms. Hail and tornadoes aren’t likely. Rain chances will be around 50 percent.
Wednesday will be a bit rainy, too. Highs will be in the mid-80s with showers and storms off-and-on all day from about 10 a.m. through 10 p.m. Again, severe weather isn’t anticipated, but some places could pick up one inch of rain by the time the day is over, depending on how storms line up. Rain chances around 70 percent.
Thursday looks to be a bit drier, but we will still have a 60 percent chance for rain. Highs will be in the mid-80s area wide with cloud cover helping to keep us a bit cooler.
Friday and into Saturday the rain begins to ease back day-by-day. High temperatures will continue to run in the mid to upper 80s. Rain totals will be as high as half an inch each day.
Next week it looks like the warmer weather will continue with highs in the upper 80s. The front we were anticipating to show up early next week looks to get hung up around Memphis – perhaps even as far north as St. Louis. Because the cold front isn’t going to come crashing down, our temperatures won’t either.
