JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - It will be chilly out tonight with temperatures expected to bottom out in the upper 30s to lower 40s. We’ll also see the clouds gradually move out as high-pressure nudges in overhead.

Wednesday’s forecast will feature nice, quiet, and warm weather as we remain under the influence of high pressure. There will be no need for a heavy coat tomorrow afternoon! Highs across central Mississippi are expected to be above average in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Make sure you take advantage of the drier conditions because that will likely come to an end by the end of the week.

Our next weather maker is on track to swing in by Thanksgiving Day brining showers and potentially thunderstorms to the area. As of current data, it looks like most of the rain will hold off until Thursday evening or night. Periods of heavy downpours look to continue into Friday as well, which could lead to localized flash flooding concerns. Showers will linger early in the weekend on Saturday before the low-pressure finally exits to the northeast. Drier conditions will return by Sunday going into early next week.
