WEEKEND: Clouds will increase from the south thanks to Nate, which will be making landfall between New Orleans and Mobile by Sunday morning. A few showers will be possible on both Saturday but more possible Sunday, especially in northeast Mississippi. Otherwise, partly to mostly cloudy with temperatures in the mid to upper 80s both days.
