First Alert: Saturday forecast

PINE BELT, MS (WDAM) - Saturday the showers will increase in intensity and coverage as we move through the morning. By 10 a.m. a good steady rain will begin to overtake the area from west to east. Severe weather isn’t anticipated, but we could catch a few rumbles of thunder. Rain may be heavy at times with totals between one and three inches. The steady rain will last from about 10 a.m. until about 8 p.m.

Saturday night rain will taper back to hit and miss showers. Some of those may hold on to early Sunday morning.

Sunday the clouds will be with us most of the day. Right now, we are forecasting a high of 50 degrees with the clouds with us almost all day long with only a few pokes of sun. There is some data starting to trickle in that show a very cold, raw, breezy day, with highs only managing the low 40s. We’ll be monitoring that closely during the next 48 hours.

Monday the clouds start to clear out by morning and into the afternoon we should be back into mostly sunny skies. Highs in the low 50s. Winds flip around during the day on Tuesday to the south and that should boost temperatures back to the upper 50s. Then into the 60s on Wednesday of next week.

The rain returns next Thursday and Friday. Right now it looks like we may have a few storms, but severe weather isn’t looking as likely.

Beyond that, it will dry back out into the next weekend and into the next work week with highs a bit below average. Next chance for rain arrives around December 20th.
