Severe weather alert for Thursday

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

We had a great day Wednesday with temps near 80 degrees, but some severe weather could be on the way.

The winds will start picking up tonight under partly cloudy skies and lows will stay in the 60s. Thursday, it will be partly sunny, windy and warm with near record high temperatures in the 80s.

Thunderstorms will develop in advance and along a cold front moving in from the west during the late afternoon and night. Some of the storms may become severe with damaging winds, large hail, tornadoes and torrential rain.

That weather will exit our area Friday morning so that Friday into the weekend will give us highs in the 60s to near 70. There may be a few showers over the weekend to contend with as well.
