First Alert Forecast: BIG cool down headed our way!
Warm Thursday, Cooler Friday (Source: WLBT)

Passing clouds and temperatures topping out in the low-mid 80s are in the forecast for our Thursday... All ahead of our next cold front. This front will be ushering in cloud cover and a few showers to our Lower Delta counties by the evening commute, and to the rest of us in Central/SW MS overnight tonight. Keep in mind that a few showers will also be possible through the morning commute, but it won’t be a washout by any means.

Behind this cold front, Friday is looking breezy and chilly with high temperatures only recovering into the mid 60s! This will make for a cool evening & the jackets will be needed for any fair or football game plans you may have. Keep those jackets handy for early Saturday morning plans as lows will be starting off in the low-mid 40s!

As an upper level ridge of high pressure starts to build in from the east into next week, temperatures will gradually climb to above average through the second half of the 7-day forecast.
