JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - THIS EVENING: While a few isolated downpours could linger around early this evening, most spots will likely remain quiet and warm. Tonight will consist of mostly quiet conditions with overnight low temperatures in the upper 60s.

WEEKEND: 90-degree weather is also expected to prevail for our first weekend of June. Highs tomorrow afternoon are forecast to reach the lower 90s in most locations under a mostly to partly sunny sky. There will also be the chance for diurnal driven isolated downpours during the afternoon hours, which could provide a bit of relief from the heat. Any showers on radar would fade away after sunset. The summer-like warmth will continue into Sunday with temperatures in the lower to middle 90s with more sunshine to go around.

EXTENDED FORECAST: A relatively quiet and warm weather pattern will carry throughout the upcoming work week. Outside of stray shower chance each day, most of the week will be pretty dry. Temperatures look to peak in the upper 80s to lower 90s each afternoon.

Talkin’ Tropics: Tropical Depression 2 becomes Tropical Strom Arlene with max sustained winds of 40 MPH. Arlene is forecast to weaken into the weekend as it tracks farther south.
