A swath of light to moderate rain showers moved in from the west this morning, but we’re seeing a break in the rain this afternoon with skies staying cloudy.

Temperatures will continue to gradually fall through the day with a north wind between 5-to-15 miles per hour. A second wave of rain showers will come through starting during the evening commute and staying with us through the overnight hours.

We will have to watch our temperatures very closely this evening as colder air is trying to move in from the northwest. There is a chance of seeing some sleet mixing in with the cold rain tonight into tomorrow morning.

The colder air moving in can potentially give us a narrow window of seeing some light freezing rain for parts of Northeast Mississippi, extreme Northwest Alabama, and parts of middle Tennessee. This would likely result in a glaze of a few hundredths of an inch mainly on elevated surfaces and powerlines.

Showers will end early and we will stay cloudy yet again, highs on Wednesday will only reach the low to middle 40s. Another round of cold rain will come through for Wednesday afternoon and evening.

Heavier and more widespread rain is in the forecast for Thursday, rainfall totals will likely be in the ½ to 1.5 inch range. Skies will begin to clear by Friday with temps staying below average in the middle to upper 40s. The weekend looks good for now with sunshine and temps in the 50s.
