MERIDIAN, ma’am. (WTOK) –
A cold front will pass through our region this evening. In the immediate future, showers and storms are forecast with a threat to the some storms are likely to reach critical limits. After 3 p.m., storm coverage will increase and a hurricane is likely between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. High winds are the main serious threat as some storms can have gusts above 58 mph. There may also be some reports of hail…especially west of the Meridian Metro. Regardless, there are ways to receive severe weather alerts. The storm will ease later tonight, but the chance of lighter showers will continue through the first half of your Tuesday. So you will need an umbrella at the start of the work week 2.
On the eve of today, we are expecting record-challenging heat. The record high in the Meridian for today of 87 degrees was set in 1957. Today’s forecast high is 87 degrees. So we’ll see if we can at least win the record. Regardless, it will be a very warm and murky day before the storms.
Much cooler weather moves behind the cold front. The highest temperature on Tuesday will hover near 70 degrees when sunny in the afternoon. Wednesday, temperatures recover in the mid-70s before the 80s bounce back on Thursday. It will be a warm good end to an 80+ year old work week and sunshine for Friday.
The upcoming weekend doesn’t look as ideal for outdoor plans as this past weekend. Peaks will remain in the 80s, but showers are expected both days..especially Sunday.
