Mississippi Skies: Soggy weekend on tap

Published 12:33 am Saturday, January 21, 2023

Parts of the state may squeak out a few hours of dry weather today, but much of the Magnolia State will be quite soggy today and tonight with a few showers lingering into Sunday. There may be an isolated thunderstorm, but the bulk of rainfall will come in the form of showers with no threat of severe weather. It’s also going to be cool, so it’s a great weekend to catch up on reading, sleeping, or some chores.

Monday will give us a nice break from the rainy period, but Tuesday could bring our next chance of severe storms. We’ll look at that more in a day or two.
