JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - TONIGHT: Another quiet and nice night is in store for central Mississippi to round out the last full week of May. Overnight low temperatures are forecast to bottom out in the lower 60s in most spots. A stray shower to the north could also develop by the early morning hours.

WEEKEND: A warm and mainly quiet Memorial Day holiday will shape up for most of the weekend. Be mindful on Saturday that there is the potential for a few isolated showers or thunderstorms, especially for those that live near the I-20 corridor and northward. Any downpours that do develop would likely be brief but could be a bit heavy. Otherwise, we will enjoy more sunshine tomorrow with highs in the middle 80s. Bright skies and seasonable temperatures are expected on Sunday and Monday as well.

EXTENDED FORECAST: Temperatures are forecast to steadily rise by the middle of next week to near 90-degrees. We should also see the opportunity for pop-up showers and storms by this time as moisture levels creep up.
