First Alert Forecast: dry into tonight, rain chances increase on Friday

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - It’s been another pleasant day with temperatures in the upper 60′s and lower 70′s and lots of sunshine across all of central MS. Overnight, it won’t be as cold with temperatures falling to the lower 40′s. We will start off our evening with clear skies, but clouds will roll into the region overnight as a disturbance moves in. Clouds will linger around all day on Friday with a system swinging in and will allow the chance for rain to return to central MS.

Scattered showers will be possible beginning in the afternoon hours potentially continuing into Friday night. Our southern and southwestern counties looks to have the best shot to see the rain. The system should pull away overnight Friday before turning drier by Saturday. Highs tomorrow will likely be in the mid to upper 60′s. High pressure will build in over the weekend allowing for brighter conditions with highs in the 60′s. Temperatures will be trending warmer back to the 70′s by the next work week with another chance for showers by the end of the work week.
