Warm Temperatures, Storms Likely For Super Bulldog Weekend

Apr 18, 2024

If you haven’t been a fan of the above normal temperatures, you’re in luck. Some relief is on the way but, you will just have to wait a few more days. Temperatures will continue to be above normal until this weekend, as highs will dip into the upper 50s for Sunday. These will be below average for this time of the year.


Spotty showers are still expected during the late afternoon hours. It won’t be a total washout as you’re heading home for your evening commute or sporting activities. Tonight, a cold front moves into the region giving way to some thunderstorms. Lows tonight will dip into the upper 50s. These storms do have the potential to be severe, as the Storm Prediction Center has a marginal risk put out for the area. Damaging winds and heavy rain are the main threats.


The 3-game series between Mississippi State and Auburn baseball is expected to begin at 6pm on Friday. First pitch, you can expect mostly cloudy skies. So, a light sweater might be suitable as the winds may cause the temps to feel a degree or two colder. Low temperatures will reach the 60s with a north wind at 5 mph. Saturday into Sunday, rain percentages will range from 50-70%, so be sure to bring an umbrella or jacket as you’re heading out to any of the sporting events. After these rounds of showers and thunderstorms over the weekend, a high pressure will gradually begin to slide into the region Sunday. This is bringing dry conditions and cool temperatures into Monday with lows being in the 40s. Temperatures begin to warm back up to near and above average early next week.
