Mississippi Skies: Great weather continues before chances of rain this weekend

Published 6:20 am Thursday, January 5, 2023

Sunny skies and a breeze will welcome people outside across the state Thursday. Some places in northern Mississippi will be cool, but it almost feels like spring in southern regions.

There are several river flood warnings across the state including the Upper Pearl River at Neshoba County; East Hobolochitto Creek at Pearl River County; the Lower Pearl River in Pearl River and Hancock counties; and the Pascagoula River in Greene, George, and Jackson counties.

Our next chance for rain comes Saturday, but it’s not looking like a severe weather event at this time.
