First Alert: Wednesday forecast

PINE BELT, MS (WDAM) - Tuesday night, temperatures will fall back into the 30s overnight and most of the area will wake up to temperatures around freezing in the morning.

Wednesday, increasing clouds during the day with highs in the low 60s. Wind from the south will help make it feel a bit more humid, too. So if you’ve been getting shocked by static electricity lately, that south wind should help put a stop to that.

Thursday, as clouds continue to increase, rain chances will increase, too. Highs will be around 65 with a 70 percent chance for rain. We may see a few storms here and there, but the threat for severe weather is looking pretty limited at this time. Current model trends keep the warm front too far to the south for severe weather to be a major concern for our area, but we will continue to monitor the data as it comes in during the next 48 hours.

Friday, we get dry-slotted behind the storms and it will be a cloudy, breezy and chilly day with highs around 60. Rain chances will run around 30 percent - mainly for the morning hours.

The weekend looks mainly dry with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s. Another front swings through late Sunday and into Monday with no threat for precipitation. It will knock highs back to the upper 50s, though.

Beyond that, it looks like the next storm system should stay to our south. Highs will continue to run in the upper 50s and low 60s through next week and into next weekend. It looks like the next chance for rain may arrive on Christmas Eve, but there is still a lot of uncertainty there.
