Showers This Morning and Sun Rest of the Week, Rivers Still High

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

We have some early morning showers that will continue to stick during the morning commute, but we shouldn't deal with the same problem this afternoon.

Our main concern is going to be the complications along the Mississippi River. There's concern about record breaking levels along the Mississippi River in the next few days.

Today's high will be near 60 degrees with a 70% chance of showers. Tonight the showers will stop,we'll clear, and drop to the 40s.

Tomorrow's sunshine will be a bit misleading; that's because of the concern for the River levels being so high.

Not only is the Mississippi a concern, but levels along the Yazoo and Big Black Rivers are also rising fast. And it's the 'delayed' effects of today's rain that will be our 'hydrological' concern by the time sunshine dominates the forecast by week's end.

No rain is expected this weekend.
