JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Scattered showers and storms are likely today with highs in the upper 80′s and lower 90′s. It will feel even hotter with the humidity factored in. Between now and into early tomorrow morning, some spots could see areas of flash flooding. Our northern counties have the best shot to see the flooding where a Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 7 AM tomorrow morning. We’re watching a complex of heavy rain and storms to the north that could sink southward by this evening which could impact portions of the area with heavy rain.

Into tonight, models suggest that we could go to bed with pretty quiet and dry conditions, but another wave of showers and storms could move in from the north by early tomorrow morning. This could also lead to spots seeing localized flash flooding to the north. By the afternoon hours tomorrow, diurnal showers or storms are possible, but best chances for rain tomorrow will be during the morning hours before decreasing during the day. Although we won’t be as unsettled through the rest of the 7-day forecast, daily afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be possible with highs in the lower 90′s each day.
