First Alert Forecast: Nice, Fall-like day is expected for Saturday

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - It has been such beautiful afternoon across the region! We’re seeing temperatures in the 70′s, low humidity, and plenty of sunshine! We won’t be as cool tonight compared to last night with lows only cooling down to the lower 50′s. Tomorrow will begin the return of the 80′s. Above average temperatures are expected to carry into our next work and school week for most of the week. Not only will we be warmer, we also see our humidity come back up a bit along with slightly better rain chanced by the middle portion of the week. A front could approach the region by the end of the 7-day forecast that could bring us showers heading into our next weekend. As this point, it doesn’t look like that front would cool temperatures off much.

A few model runs have suggested we could see another cool down beyond our 7-day period for the following work week. Confidence in this occurring right now is on the lower side, but could be a possibility. A disturbance in the Atlantic now has an 90% chance for development and could develop into a subtropical depression could form in the next few days. Models have suggested that this could move southward a bit before turning back out to sea. So, it doesn’t look like it will pose a threat to central MS. Regardless, we will continue to monitor it. Another disturbance is located in the SW Caribbean and has a 30% chance for formation. We will also continue to watch this area of concern too.
