Spot Storms Early, Then Late

Posted: Updated:

A quick moving isolated T-storm rumbled through the Jackson Metro area this morning, causing some slow down on local highways. This was particularly true in southern Rankin County and along highway 49 near Star, Mississippi.

Throughout Monday we anticipate clouds hovering all day long, and the second threat of rain mainly holding off until the evening and late night hours. Today's highs will be in the mid 80s with a slight chance of afternoon showers.

A cold front is pushing through the state during the afternoon hours, possibly giving us a chance of a fast forming showers. Then a nudge from the south with some stubborn southern (and moisture soaked) air will create a stationary boundary in the south west corner of the state.

Another round of scattered showers expected during the overnight period, raising our chances of rain to 40%+. Wind will be shifting from the northeast to the southeast, perhaps giving us an early hint of volatile weather (storms) possibly during the overnight hours.

Our chances of rain stick around until Wednesday, peaking at a 40% chance on Tuesday and maintaining a 30% chances for Wednesday. By Thursday we'll clear out with plenty of sunshine and stay that way throughout the weekend.
