Storms target us today

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

Early morning fog may be a bit dense just on the other side of the Mississippi river near Adams and Wilkinson counties. Dense fog advisories are posted for south and central parishes of Louisiana.

We will have to contend with shower forming throughout the day; initial showers move along the I-20 corridor toward Warren & Issaquena counties. More widespread showers for the entire state by the afternoon; 70% chance of showers with winds SW 10-15 mph. Highs will be in the mid 60s.

Tonight we are expecting the showers to kick in with a good chance of isolated T-storms likely. There's a real possibility of heavy downpours and brief flooding in sensitive low lying areas.

Lows will drop into the mid 40s, so a bit of a chill will be in the air as well. Winds will shift to the north, which will add to the 'chill' of the night.

Tuesday we could wake up to a few lingering early morning showers on election day. By the lunchtime hours we should begin to clear from what few showers are still in place. The chances of rain will drop to only 20-30% possibilities.

Expect temps to stay below the norm for this time of the year, staying in the lower 60s and winds becoming light.
