JULIA'S FORECAST: Washed Out Friday

Umbrellas, boots, and warm rain jackets... these are all accessories you'll be thankful for today. Wet weather is in store on this last day of the work week. It's a chilly rain at that, with the temperatures today holding steady in the 40s.

Showers move in from southwest to northeast across the state as we head through the morning, so the farther south in the state you are, the earlier you'll start to see the rain. 

The Hinds/Rankin/Madison Tri-County area will likely see the onset of rain by mid to late morning. Once the rain starts it will be consistent with few breaks. Most will see rainfall amounts near an inch, but greater totals are possible under heavier downpours.

Rain pushes eastward and away as we head through the overnight, leaving most dry by early Saturday morning. 

A few showers are possible south of I-20 as we start the weekend, but most will just have clouds and some sun. 

Saturday will have a cool feel to it with highs only in the low and mid 50s. Sunday will be a tad better in the upper 50s.

For the last minute Christmas shoppers, Monday is the last best day before Christmas Eve to buy gifts! 

The day will be pleasant in the mid 60s with sun. Tuesday will be another wet day with scattered rain. 

A brief cool down settles in for Christmas Eve, and highs will only be in the low 50s with dry weather. Christmas Day itself looks to be gorgeous in the mid 60s with sunshine!

As for the rest of the country... the forecast now is for a nasty rain and snowstorm to impact the Northeast and Midwest leading up to the holiday. We'll have travel forecast details as new information comes in.
