Mississippi Skies: Rainy weather pattern finally moving into the Magnolia State

Published 7:50 pm Wednesday, November 8, 2023

Rain chances are increasing and expanding across Mississippi. So many times the past few months, we’ve watched long-range and mid-range models showing decent rain chances only to dry up when we get to that point.

With the current pattern setting up, we’re seeing some rain chances beginning Thursday night and stretching through the weekend. We’re evening seeing some decent chances developing for the middle of next week!

Although we do have the chance for around an inch or two of rain in some places, others will only receive a trace, or none at all. This isn’t one of those huge systems that guarantees rainfall for the entire state, unfortunately.
