as we head into the first half of this evening, the potential for strong and severe storms will remain intact over much of northeast mississippi. the greatest risk and concentration of severe storms is expected to be focused just northwest of much of our area. folks in lafayette, yalobusha, grenada, tippah, union, prentiss and tishomingo counties will be at the greatest risk of experiencing the following potential impacts in order of most concern: damaging winds, a tornado or two, hail, heavy rainfall, and lightning. in terms of timing, the most active weather occur between now and roughly 10 pm tonight. after that point, a few showers and perhaps an isolated storm (likely non-severe) could still be present heading into the overnight hours. overnight a fairly well-pronounced cold front will be pushing through our area as we head into and through the morning hours on tuesday. tomorrow, a few isolated storms will linger into the early morning hours. then, we'll just see some lingering clouds and a few isolated showers and sprinkles through the afternoon. otherwise, tuesday appears to be a little bit cooler with highs in the mid-80s and less humidity and breezy northerly to northwesterly winds of 10 to 20 mph. as we head into tuesday night, we should be much drier. so morning lows may dip into the mid and upper 60s by wednesday. we'll remain on the cooler side through the middle of the work week. expect abundant sunshine, no rain, and highs only in the mid-80s for wednesday and thursday. by thursday morning, temperatures may drop into the lower to mid-60s. this will be the case into friday morning. but by the afternoon, we'll see the heat build back into the region. and shortly thereafter, into the weekend, the humidity builds back as well. by saturday, we'll see a mix of sun and clouds with more heat and humidity. temperatures reach into the lower 90s with a few isolated showers and storms. then into sunday, we'll see a few more isolated showers and storms with highs in the lower to mid-90s. by then, our heat index values should likely be reaching into the upper 90s and lower 100s once again. one grocery store is making it easier
