JULIA'S FORECAST: Chilly & windy today, freezing tonight!

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -


It's now safe to say that the rain has ended and the severe weather threat has come to a close. Now, we're dealing with the aftermath of the potent cold front that swept through yesterday, namely the river flooding and the cooler temps.

We had nearly 3" of rain in the city of Jackson, and rivers and streams rose once again as a result. Most rivers have already crested, but we're still keeping an eye on a few that are still rising.

Cold air is flowing in on a blustery wind from the northwest today, gusting near 30mph at times. Given the saturated ground High temperatures today are only expected to reach the mid 50s, but it will likely only feel like the upper 40s for a lot of the day thanks to the wind chill factor. Fortunately, we'll at least have sunshine.

Winds relax tonight, but the clear skies will allow the temps to tumble. Many should graze the freezing mark, allowing for a widespread frost to occur. Areas northeast of Jackson could see significant plant damage to any unprotected sensitive vegetation.
