JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Today: This morning, we will continue to see clouds overhead with a few areas of patchy fog. However, any fog that does develop will dissipate by mid-morning. Temperatures will start to climb back into the low 60s by late morning. Today, you can expect highs in the upper 60s and low 70s. Clouds will start to clear out this afternoon with much more sunshine overhead. This evening will be on the cooler side as temperatures begin falling into the 50s and eventually bottoming out in the low 40s and upper 30s.

Sunday: Sunday morning will be off to a cooler start with temperatures in the upper 30s. Clouds will start to build back in throughout the day as temperatures continue warming up into the low 70s. Heading into Sunday evening, we could see a few light showers across the area that linger into early Monday morning. Temperatures overnight will be back into the low 50s.

Extended forecast: A First Alert Weather Day is in place for Monday as a strong cold front moves in bringing the chance for strong to severe storms. There will be a warm front, however, that moves through ahead of the approaching cold front that will bring showers and a few thunderstorms. At this time, the bulk of the storms will move in late Monday night and into early Tuesday morning. The main threats with these storms will be damaging wind, hail, and an isolated tornado or two can’t be ruled out. Once this system moves through by Tuesday, we stay slightly cooler and drier throughout the remainder of the week, making for a pleasant Thanksgiving.
