JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Another cool night is on tap with clear skies and low humidity in place across the region. Overnight low will eventually bottom out in the upper 40s to lower 50s by the early morning hours of our Thursday.

Thursday will shape up to be another beautiful day with plenty of sunshine to go around. Temperatures during the afternoon hours are forecast to reach the middle 70s as winds continue to flow out of the northeast. While the threat of wildfires isn’t as high tomorrow, continue to be cautious of any outdoor burning.

Our weather is expected to stay quiet through the weekend and likely into next week as well. Highs most afternoons should make it to the lower/middle 80s under mostly sunny skies with lows falling to the 50s.

Talkin’ Tropics: After making landfall as a powerful category 4 hurricane this afternoon over southwest Florida, Hurricane Ian is now slowly weakening as it moves NE over land. Unfortunately, dangerous storm surge, flooding, and winds will continue out this way into tonight. Over the next few days, Ian will move impact Georgia, South and North Carolina with more heavy rainfall, winds, and potentially severe weather as it tracks farther north.
