FLASH FLOOD WATCH IN EFFECT FOR AREAS ALONG AND NORTH OF I-20, INCLUDING THE JACKSON METRO, THROUGH WEDNESDAY EVENING.
WEDNESDAY: A squall line will push through the area through the morning commute; bringing with it heavy downpours and the possibility of a few strong to severe storms. Localized flooding, gusty winds and hail are the primary concerns. Though, a spin-up tornado can’t be ruled out. Showers, storms will ease out of the area through the latter half of the day; leading to falling temperatures – falling from the 60s early, to the 40s and 50s through the afternoon hours. We’ll fall back into the 30s by early Thursday under partly cloudy skies.
THURSDAY: High pressure noses in briefly to keep the weather calm through your Thursday. Expect high clouds to mix with sunshine amid a cool northeasterly flow – temperatures will top out in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Clouds will begin to increase from the south Thursday evening as we fall back into the 30s and lower 40s.
LATE WEEK: An active pattern takes hold through the latter part of the forecast period. South breezes come back quickly Friday, bringing the moisture and warmth back to round out the week. Expect variably cloudy skies with highs in the 60s. Scattered showers may sneak in by the end of the day. Several southern stream disturbances moving through, kicking up rain, at times, being heavy. Additional rainfall totals could be 2 – 4”. Highs will be warm, in the 60s and 70s even amid the periods of rain. Rain chances will subside a bit into next week, yet remain present - highs will hold in the 60s Monday and Tuesday.
