JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Now that most of the showers and storms have come to an end for the day, quiet conditions are expected persist into tonight. Skies will be mostly to partly clear throughout the overnight periods with low temperatures in the lower to middle 70s.

Sunday’s forecast will also feature more heat and the chance for hit and miss PM downpours. Highs will likely top out in the lower to middle 90s with feels like temperatures around 100 to 105. With the heating of the day, pop-up showers or thunderstorms are possible at times during the afternoon and early evening. Most showers will again come to an end once the sun goes down.

The heat is expected to back off a bit throughout the new work and school week since the chance for rain will be higher. Scattered showers and storms are likely on a daily basis with high temperatures in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. We should also see a frontal boundary drop in by Thursday or so, which will keep rain chances elevated.

Talkin’ Tropics: After weeks of quiet conditions over the tropics, that is now starting to change this weekend. We are closely monitoring a tropical wave that is expected to track westward off the west coast of Africa by tonight. The NHC is giving this area a medium 40% chance for development over the next 5 days. Environmental conditions will likely be favorable for gradual development over the days ahead.
