Sunny Skies To Start the Weekend!

Editor’s Note: Brendan’s Last Day

Today we say goodbye to one of our interns, Brendan Schaper. As you probably know, interns draft all blog content Monday through Saturday (Will, Andrew, and I have full time jobs and fuller time families). Our internts are meteorology students at Mississippi State University. They volunteer their time and work very hard to produce good information for you. Along the way they get better at communicating weather information; after all, writing is a muscle, it strengthens with use. Most of what you read from our interns is edited by me, Will, or Andrew, but I have not had to edit anything Brendan has done for more than a year. He is outstanding. He’s graduating this Spring and has a coveted job for the National Weather Service waiting for him. We are going to miss him. Thanks for the work, Brendan. We consider you a friend and look forward to seeing what you do down the road. read more

Dry Friday, Weekend is Wet, But Models Not Agreeing On How Much

Warmer Day On the Way

A southerly breeze will bump temperatures into the middle 50s today, and while some clouds will be passing through, there will be enough sunshine to get us there. It’s Friday! And for some of the kiddos/teachers/college folk out there, Spring Break officially begins today. Road conditions will be most optimal today for heading south. Rain and a few storms will make driving less pleasant on Saturday, detailed below. If you’ll be a beach bum like me, don’t forget the SPF 1,000 sunscreen. read more
