JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A seasonable August afternoon is expected across central and southwest MS today as we wrap up the work week. Temperatures will be near normal in the lower 90s under a mix of sun and clouds. There is also the chance for spotty showers or thunderstorms between now until the early evening hours. Any downpours on radar should come to an end close to or after sunset. Expect low temperatures to gradually bottom out in the lower 70s by the early morning hours.

Hit and miss showers and storms will be possible over the weekend as well, mainly during the afternoon and early evening hours. Otherwise, will be hot out! High temperatures are forecast to reach the lower and middle 90s with feels like temperatures just above 100 degrees.

Rain, storm chances will start to trend upwards by the time we kick off the next work and school week. As a result, temperatures will slightly come down with highs more so in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees on a daily basis. A front is also expected to drop in towards by mid to late week, which will keep the chance for rain elevated.
