JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Our local risk for strong or severe weather has pretty much come to an end as the broken line of storms tracks farther south out of our area. A few showers will linger around the area overnight as low temperatures bottom out in the upper 60s.

Lingering showers will also be possible on Monday with the weak cold front still stationary over the region. We could see a thunderstorm tomorrow, but severe weather is not expected. Otherwise, it will be steamy out again tomorrow in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees under a mix of sun and clouds.

With ridging strengthening once again across the region, rain chances will go down over the coming days as temperatures trend slightly upwards. Skies will be mostly to partly throughout the new week as temperatures peak in the lower to middle 90s each afternoon. By next weekend, rain and storm chances will return as a cold front approaches from the NW.
