First Alert Forecast: morning showers & storms, turning drier by afternoon

JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The showers and storms have finally exited our area out to the east, but we are left with lingering cloud cover. Into the afternoon hours, we’ll continue to stay dry for the most part with clouds gradually clearing. High temperatures today will warm to the mid to upper 70′s under partly cloudy skies. Much calmer and quieter conditions are expected overnight with lows falling to the lower 50′s.

We’ll wrap up our weekend with very nice and bright conditions. Temperatures will rise to the mid to upper 70′s into the afternoon hours with mainly sunny skies throughout the day. It will certainly be a better ending to the weekend compared to how we started it.

Rain chances will likely return by Tuesday of the upcoming work week and we’ll continue to be unsettled each day with the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms basically each day throughout the end of the week. Temperatures over the next several days also look to be a bit cooler than what we have seen recently. A front will likely pass through by mid-week which could potentially lead to highs cooler than normal in the lower 70′s.
