Mississippi Skies: Rainy, cooler weather arriving Friday

Published 10:51 pm Thursday, February 15, 2024

After a few spring-like sunny days, our wet weekend weather pattern returns with an approaching cold front.

This wet weekend will be a little different than the past few, however, as rain will move out by Saturday afternoon. We’ll be much cooler, but sunshine returns Sunday.

This system is also different as not everyone will receive rain. Some of us will remain cloudy and breezy.
