BLACK FRIDAY: Brisk breezes continue to filter in behind our Thursday cold front, keeping temperatures in the 50s for the afternoon hours. Expect highs in the lower to middle 50s amid mostly to partly sunny skies. Overnight, expect partly clear skies with lows well into the 30s; with a few upper 20s possible, NE of Metro Jackson. Make sure to protect your pets and any tender vegetation you may have.

WEEKEND PLANNER: The start of the weekend will feature some sunshine – clouds will quickly overtake the area through Saturday – only yielding highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s. A weak low will move into the Gulf of Mexico, slinging moisture back toward the area – kicking up shower chances late Saturday into early Sunday. Behind it, we’ll dry out quickly with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s again Sunday with sunshine breaking out through the afternoon hours.

EXTENDED FORECAST: High pressure settles over the area again into the start of the new work week. We’ll trend dry once again next week, warming through the 60s to the lower 70s by mid-late next week. Rain chances remain negligible until the end of next week and into the weekend.
