JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Changes in our weather pattern are currently happening today. A cold front is slowly dropping in from the north and this front will eventually end the dangerous heat wave that has stuck around with us for days now. A few showers and storms remain on the radar this evening, but most of the should fizzle out within the next couple of hours as rain chances taper off into tonight. Overnight, expect temperatures to fall to the mid 70′s with a slight chance for a lingering shower.

The concern for heat stress will finally come to an end tomorrow as the front continues to sink south across the area. It won’t be very toasty out tomorrow, but it will likely be mild with highs in the middle 80′s. Chances for showers and storms will continue into tomorrow, so keep your umbrella nearby!

Drier conditions are expected through the rest of the work week with highs near and slightly below average in the upper 80′s and lower 90′s. Drier air will gradually filter in behind the front through the week giving us relief from the mugginess as humidity levels decrease. More seasonal temperatures are forecast to return into next weekend as moisture surges back into the region.
