Slow Moving Downpours Today

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

A very muggy tropical-like air mass remains over the Deep South this weekend. This will combine with warm afternoon temperatures to produce a decent coverage of showers and isolated storms.

Some showers developed north of I-20 early Saturday morning. I expect to see additional areas of rain and storms through the day. Rain will be heavy and storms will move slowly. As a result, some areas may pick up a couple of inches of rain in a short period of time.

The temperature forecast is pretty tough for today. Once widespread rain and storms develop, warming will halt. I think most areas should at least see upper 80s today, but a few low 90s are possible if rain holds off later.

Most of the downpours will end by mid-evening, but I won't rule out a few showers overnight. Otherwise I expect to see rain increase in coverage again for Sunday.
