Speech to Text for Matt's 5pm Friday Forecast

a split decision: weekend storms return the majority of the next week or more will be a little bit below what we expect this time of the year as cooler weather just won't let go of its hold. our next rain chance arrives late saturday night and sunday. saturday will start dry with temperatures in the mid 40s and under partly sunny skies, we should reach the lower to middle 70s by afternoon. we expect by late evening rain chances start to increase and certainly, clouds will increase as well. over the next week, our peak rain chance will be this system that should confine most of its strong storms to our south, closer to the coast. there are scenarios where perhaps we could have a few stronger thunderstorms in this part of the state, but most of what we should see should be just rainfall. stay tuned because we might have to adjust that thinking a little bit. if we were to see severe storms, a few strong wind gusts and perhaps a tornado remain possible, certainly south/east of the natchez trace as the preferred zone. peak rain timing on sunday is likely to be around midday. some projections are a little faster and slower than that, but it is clear that of the two weekend days sunday is the most likely to be rainy/stormy. high temperatures on sunday will probably struggle to reach the mid-60s, though if you can get a little more sunshine, a few 70s may possible down closer to central mississippi. sunday's storm system could continue to wrap-around cloud cover and oyster as late as monday or maybe even tuesday depending on exactly where it completely unraveles and falls apart. i'm keeping marginal rain chances in for the first of next week as a result, with another front arriving behind sunday's system the first half of the week and another late in the week. banking giant wells fargo has agreed to
