First Alert Forecast: rainy & muggy conditions likely over the next several days
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - It’s going to feel muggier and more humid out today as southerly flow returns bringing moisture back in across the region from the Gulf. This will also lead to a slight chance for a few isolated downpours, mainly for areas off to the south. Expect temperatures to rise to the upper 80s and low 90s this afternoon.
While you might not need the rain gear today, make sure you have it handy as you head out on Monday and pretty much throughout the rest of the work week. Showers and storms will be possible on a daily basis, especially with tropical moisture increasing as TS Nicholas moves closer to the Gulf Coast into this week.
At this point, most of the impacts from Nicholas will be felt out towards the Texas and Louisiana Coast where models suggest several inches of rain look possible this week. Here in central MS, we could get impacted by what is left over from the system since it will be much weaker at that time by the end of the work week. Regarless, rainy periods looks possible for us through much of the week.
