JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Quiet, calm, and mostly clear conditions will persist throughout the overnight periods as we remain under the influence of high pressure. Expect low temperatures to bottom out in the 60s by the early morning hours.

Sunday’s forecast will almost be a repeat of today’s weather. There will be plenty of sunshine to go around across the region as temperatures rise slightly above average in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Overall, it will be another warm, but beautiful day to get outside and enjoy!

High temperatures are expected to slightly trend upwards into the new work and school week for the last few days of summer. At this point, most of us will likely top out in the middle 90s by the middle of the week with some spots farther north potentially making a run at the upper 90s. We will likely see this weather around next Thursday for the first day of fall. There are indications that another front will dive in by the end of the week to funnel in drier air back in and some relief into next weekend. We will watch how models trend on this scenario over the coming days.

Talkin’ Tropics: Tropical Storm Fiona continues to bring heavy rainfall to Puerto Rico as it moves WNW. Fiona will pass just east of Hispaniola during the next couple of days before curving to the north back out to sea as likely strengthens to a hurricane. Looking elsewhere in the tropics, there is another disturbance over the central Atlantic the NHC is monitoring. It currently has a low chance for development and poses no threat to land.
