JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A bright and cool afternoon is on tap for central Mississippi in the wake of last night’s storm system. Temperatures today are forecast to top out in the middle/upper 60s under a mainly sunny sky. It will get cooler out into the overnight period with low temperatures down in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Clouds will begin to build in overhead into Friday as our next weather maker approaches. There could be a few sprinkles or light showers under some of the clouds tomorrow, but most spots should round out the work week on a quiet note. Expect temperatures during the afternoon hours to peak in the middle and upper 50s, which is more seasonable for this time of year.

Periods of showers and few thunderstorms are expected at times into Saturday and early Sunday as a low-pressure system lifts out of the southwest. The clouds and chances for rain will keep afternoon temperatures on the cooler side in the middle 50s throughout the weekend. Our weather will trend drier throughout Sunday and Monday to kick off the new week. Chances for rain will pick up again by the middle of the week as another system swings in.
