TUESDAY: A few showers and storms will be possible through the afternoon hours with highs in the 80s to near 90. Most of the storm chances will be south/east of Metro Jackson through the latter part of the day. This evening, a few of the storms could drift northward amid partly clear to variably cloudy skies. Lows will fall back into the upper 60s and lower 70s.

WEDNESDAY: Our second front will on approach the area through Wednesday evening – ahead of it, expect a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures spiking into the lower to middle 90s for most areas. A few pop-up storms can’t be ruled out, but overall coverage remains low. As the front sweeps south, the drier air will begin to filter in – lows will drop into the 60s by early Thursday.

EXTENDED FORECAST: Bright sunshine and a ‘fall-esque’ feel in the humidity department comes into play, post-front. We’ll be in the 80s for highs Thursday with mainly sunny skies and lower humidity that will be more akin to early fall. Lows late week will be in the lower to middle 60s. Gradually, we’ll rebound back into ‘normal’ territory by the weekend with highs in the lower 90s. Chances for a few storms could return as early as Sunday or into early next week.
