9:45PM Friday: Cloudy but dry to start the weekend

Weather

A weak front is draped just south of the area allowing slightly cooler and drier air to filter in this evening.

We will start the weekend with a lot of cloud cover but should stay dry through Saturday. Look for easterly winds around 10 early and then southeasterly by the afternoon.

By Sunday a big storm system will be moving out of Texas into the MS River valley. While the bulk of this system heads north, it will likely produce storms over our area by late morning or afternoon. Some storms could be strong to severe with locally heavy downpours as well.

We are currently under a level 2 risk of severe weather. Please stay aware of conditions through the day and realize wind damage is possible even without a tornado warning.

Rain chances will continue into the first half of next week.
