First Alert: Tuesday forecast

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Skies will remain clear Monday night with temperatures easing back into the 60s after sunset and into the 50s overnight. A few spots will dip into the 40s again, too.

Tuesday will be another very nice day. Morning temperatures will heat up quickly from the 50-degree range into the 70s by lunch. Eventually we will top out around 80 degrees. No threat for rain tomorrow.

Wednesday we start to increase the cloud cover and the wind. Wind from the south at 5 to 15 mph will start to usher in Gulf of Mexico air. Temperatures will top out in the low to mid 80s. Chance for rain will be between 10 and 20 percent.

Thursday will be the main event, though. It looks like we will have to keep close tabs on where, if at all, a surface-area of low pressure forms along a stout cold front. That will dictate how severe the weather become for our area. Right now, the SPC has the area under a Slight Risk for severe weather Thursday afternoon and evening. All modes of severe weather - rain, wind, hail, tornadoes - will be possible.

Friday we clear things out and cool things down. A lot like this last Sunday, we will be cooler with highs around 70.
