JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Today’s high temperature of 62 degrees was reached after a morning low of 28 degrees. Average high is 56 and the average low is 35 this time of year. Sunrise is 7:01am and the sunset is 5:22pm. After a sunny and pleasant day today with highs well into the 60s, a split in temperatures and weather is expected to last much of this work week. Highs will be in the upper 50s to middle 60s, but you’ll find cooler weather farther north of Interstate 20 and much warmer weather farther south of Interstate 20. The front will wobble north and south over the coming days and while it will be too weak to generate severe weather, there will be occasional showers from time to time and that will be an issue to contend with. Overnight lows will be in the 40s and 50s.
The good news is that this weekend looks sunny and pleasant with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s and morning lows in the lower 40s. A stronger system may swing in here Monday or Tuesday of next week.
