JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A dry cold front will continue to make progress southward overnight, which will help reinforce the cold weather for the weekend. Otherwise, it will be another cold one out tonight as temperatures bottom out near and slightly below freezing under mostly cloudy skies. Areas of frost could also develop overnight with calm and light winds in the forecast.

There is a slight chance for a few showers or sprinkles on Saturday, mainly south of I-20, as a disturbance drifts by to our south, but most spots will likely stay dry. High temperatures tomorrow afternoon will reach the middle 50s under a mostly cloudy sky. We should see most of the clouds clear out by Sunday allowing for brighter skies to return by the end of the weekend. Temperatures Sunday afternoon will also be below average in the lower 50s.

Our stretch of winter-like weather looks to come to an end next week ahead of Thanksgiving Day. Temperatures are expected to gradually warm up back to the middle 60s by the middle of the week, which is more seasonable for this time of year. Chances for rain are also possible by this time, but there is still uncertainty. We will have a better idea on the set-up and timing as we get closer to the holiday.
