JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Did you see the waterspout yesterday? At around 6:30pm a thin funnel extended down the water of Pelahatchie Bay, and was visible from both Rankin and Madison Counties. Waterspouts are typically much weaker than tornadoes that form over land, and they don't necessarily have to be associated with a severe thunderstorm. Thankfully, no damage or injuries occurred.

Let's talk about today's weather! It's going to be warm and humid throughout the morning. On the weather map, we're watching a cold front approaching from the north. As it starts to pass through the area, we'll see rain and thunderstorms popping up. This will likely begin around lunchtime, but the most likely time frame for activity is in the mid to late afternoon and early evening. Once we lose the heating of the day after the sun sets (8:04pm) the threat for thunder will decrease. Skies clear overnight.

Our high temps today will feel warm and sticky in the upper 80s and low 90s. Tomorrow, with added sunshine, we'll see Friday highs topping out in the low 90s. It's still going to be humid tomorrow, since that cold front will never actually provide relief. Instead, it lifts away from us as a warm front, and actually enhances our heat over the weekend.
