A few showers and storms are lingering around the area after an active morning in parts of the Jackson Metro... We'll run the chance of seeing more scattered showers and storms through the afternoon and early evening hours as highs remain below-average. 

Although a few showers & t'storms are possible into the weekend, coverage won't be as impressive! Temperatures and dewpoints will steadily rise, allowing for highs back near 90° each afternoon. 

Next week is looking very unsettled, with a good chance of showers and storms each and every day... We’ll have plenty of tropical moisture to work week and we’re going to be tracking potentially 2 hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico by the start of the week.

There’s still plenty of uncertainty as many factors will be coming into play the next few days, in regards to these systems... A lot can and likely will change, so be sure to stay tuned for frequent updates through the weekend as we fine tune local impact forecast!
