rumbles of thunder are tracking through northeast mississippi. none of this morning activity is likely to be very strong and also not severe. the morning will feature mostly cloudy skies with temperatures gradually rising into the mid-80s around noon. we will likely not warm much above the mid-80s for our highs to today given the continued presence of a good number of showers and storms along with the cloud coverage. a few spots that do gets some peaks of sunshine through the clouds could, however, climb as high as the upper 80s briefly by mid-afternoon. a lingering frontal system will be just off to the north and west of our area for the next few days. this will provide just enough energy to our area that we will see some patchy areas of showers and thunderstorms over the next few days. some of the thunderstorms will be strong and possibly even briefly severe. the main impact that stronger or severe storms will pose will be the threats of strong potentially damaging wind gusts, lightning, heavy rainfall, and maybe even some small hail. we will see most of the showers and thunderstorms clear our area as we go into the middle portion of next week. this will be due to the aforementioned frontal system moving through our area and some high pressure building into our area during the middle to late portion of the upcoming work week. most of the high temperatures over the next several days will be well into the 80s to near 90 degrees. while the heat index will be well into the 90s and at times over 100 degrees. most of our overnight low temperatures will be in the 70s, dropping off into the 60s after next week's frontal passage. thanks for joining us.... wtva 9 news weekend today continues into the 6 o'clock hour in just a few minutes... thanks for joining us.... wtva 9 news weekend today continues into the 6 o'clock hour in just a few minutes... thanks for joining us.... wtva 9 news weekend today continues into the 6 o'clock hour in just a few minutes... we'll see you then...
