Mississippi Skies: Plenty of rainy weather on the way with temperatures plummeting Wednesday

Published 8:46 pm Tuesday, February 27, 2024

It may seem the ole ground hog may have been right for the past couple of weeks, but it’s going to feel like a late autumn day Wednesday.

We’ll have a good chance for rain from the northern regions to central Mississippi with less of a chance south, but we’ll all continue to deal with strong wind gusts. Our highs in the northern two-thirds of the state will come in the morning before temperatures plummet 15 to 20 degrees by late afternoon.

Although we’ll warm right back up, the rain isn’t going away. We’ll still have plenty of clouds with a few locations getting a peak or two of sunshine the next day or two, but more rain moves into the state Friday with good chances across the state.
