Clear skies and dry conditions have lasted into our Thursday and will continue through the rest of the evening as well! Highs right around 70° this afternoon will give way to temperatures in the 50s and 60s for much of the evening, before dropping into the 40s overnight.

Clouds will be increasing into Friday morning before scattered shower chances return to the forecast by Friday afternoon and evening. The highest rain chances will exist from the Jackson Metro to the SW as a low-pressure system moves through Texas and Louisiana.

Fortunately, our rain chances will clear out just in time for the weekend! Sunshine will return both Saturday and Sunday as highs lift into the mid-upper 60s.

A warming trend will take us into next week, and we’ll eventually top out in the mid-upper 70s by the middle of next week. With high pressure to the east of us at this point, a few showers each day can’t be ruled out Tuesday-Thursday.
