Mississippi Skies: Don’t put away those coats and umbrellas yet

Published 11:24 pm Wednesday, January 25, 2023

Mississippi will finally start drying out a little today, but it’s still going to be cold and breezy across the state. Clouds will hang around much of the region this morning, but many of us should see some sunshine by this afternoon. Don’t get too accustomed to the sun, though. The National Weather Service is forecasting quite a bit of rain beginning this weekend and lasting a few days and nights.

Forecasters are also keeping an eye on some bodies of water, especially the Big Black River, Leaf River and Pearl River. We’ll keep a watch on those rivers as more heavy rain moves into the region in a couple of days.
