time of the year as cooler weather just won't let go of its hold. the pattern remains relatively progressive over the next week with 2 to 3 fronts passing during that time frame. what does that mean? there's barely any time to get moisture returning before the next front moves through... and that fortunately limits the severe weather potential over the period. considering we are in the last half of april, and this typically is close to the peak of our severe weather season, that's a good pattern to find ourselves in. all of that said, with the pattern so progressive, it's not impossible that the severe weather threat could extend more into may more than it typically does. that's a feeling more than a fact, but something to continue to pay attention to. in the meantime, our next rain chance arrive late saturday night and sunday. prior to that, friday is expected to be dry and mostly clear with a frosty start and low temperatures in the upper 30s near the tennessee state line with lower 40s for most of us. friday afternoon reaches the upper 60s to low 70s with a little bit of an easterly breeze continuing. saturday will start dry with temperatures in the mid 40s and under mostly sunny skies we should reach the lower to middle 70s by afternoon. we expect by late 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. peak rain timing on sunday is likely to be around mid day. 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 or may possible down closer to central mississippi. sundays 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.
