JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Mississippi Department of Transportation reports all of the signals at the Lakeland Drive and Ridgewood Road intersection are now working. Heavy wind and rain disrupted the power to several lights along Lakeland Drive Tuesday morning.

The power was restored to all lights shortly after noon except at the Ridgewood Road intersection.

The weather that caused the disruption will stick around through the afternoon hours, not making for a much better afternoon commute.

We start off Tuesday morning with somewhat breezy conditions, the winds pushing from the NW at 15-20 mph. A fast approaching cold front from the west will bring a 50% chance of isolated thunderstorms to your neighborhood.

Track the storms as they move through your neighborhood with the Interactive Radar.

The afternoon commute may be a bit slick with pockets of heavy rain included in the mix. Highs will be in the lower to mid 60s.

The storms and the clouds are expected to clear rather quickly Tuesday night, and by the late night hours even the clouds are expected to move out of the way. The cold front will not only bring in the rain, but much cooler air. Temperatures will drop to the mid 30s overnight with mainly clear skies. Winds will continue to pus from the NW 10-15 mph.

Wednesday we start off with a serious chill in the air, and it will feel like a dramatic difference compared to the warm weather of the previous day. Temperatures are only going to climb into the low to mid 50s. The winds will continue to push from the NW 10-15 mph, so watch for a cutting breeze during the afternoon hours.
