JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Most of the area is now seeing clear skies as the system that impacted us with both rain and snow exits farther east. Tonight will be a cold one in the wake of this system! Expect overnight lows to fall close to and slightly below freezing under mainly clear skies. Although majority of the roadways have dried out, a few slick spots could form overnight and into early tomorrow morning, mainly on overpasses/bridges.

Monday’s forecast will feature much nicer weather for Martin Luther King Jr. Day! There will be plenty of sunshine to go around across the region with high temperatures expected to climb to the lower 50s. It will get cold and possibly frosty going forward into Monday night/Tuesday morning with lows back in the lower 30s.

Temperatures will trend warmer into the middle of the week with highs near 70 possible on Wednesday. By this time, our next front will move in and will likely bring in showers to the area on Wednesday with few possibly lingering on Thursday. Once this system passes through, cold air will move in by the end of the week with highs returning to the 40s with lows in the 20s.
