JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - As Claudette continues to pull away from the area, the rain activity decreases. A few lingering showers are possible this afternoon and evening, but most of the area will remain on the dry side through the rest of the day. Expect highs this afternoon in the lower to mid 80′s under mainly to partly cloudy skies.

The tropical system is expected to continue moving northeastward and will eventually pull away from the area by tomorrow. With moisture lingering around scattered downpours are still possible into Father’s Day. Temperatures will be more seasonal and closer to average tomorrow afternoon with highs near 90 degrees.

We will kick off the new work week on a warm note in the lower 90′s, but then a cold front will push in as we head into Tuesday. Rain and storms will be possible in association with this frontal boundary, so make sure you have your rain gear nearby into next week! Highs will be a bit cooler in the 80′s on Tuesday before we warm back up by late week with rain chances decreasing.
