First Alert: Cool tonight followed a sunny Friday afternoon

Clouds will clear as we move through the overnight hours tonight and into Friday morning. Some lingering cloud cover may persist through 9 a.m. Friday. Temperatures tonight will fall back into the 30s area-wide.

Friday will start out chilly, and temperatures will only bounce back into the upper 50s. If any clouds are around in the morning, they won't last long as sunshine should be the name of the game into the afternoon. There is no chance for rain.

Saturday, the clouds start to increase in the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will be in the 30s in the morning - with a possible frost - and push back to around 60 in the afternoon. By late evening there is a chance for some light drizzle to sneak back into the area. The chance for rain will be around 20%, and mainly after 7 p.m.

Sunday the clouds thicken up even more with a 30% chance for rain. Highs will be in the mid 60s. Rain will be off-and-on and some places may even see some sunshine between the showers, too.

By Monday and into Tuesday, the clouds take over and a south wind off the Gulf of Mexico will be our main source of heat. highs will be in the low to mid 70s. There will be a chance for showers and storms each day, with only a very slight chance for a strong or severe storm. The chance for rain will be around 30-40%.

By Wednesday, a cold front passes through the area and cools the area back into the 50s and 60s. It looks like the front linger in the area for a few days, leaving south Mississippi stuck in the clouds with chances for rain through Friday.

Beyond that, things clear out into next weekend.
