FLASH FLOOD WATCH IS IN EFFECT FOR AREAS ALONG AND NORTH OF I-20, INCLUDING THE JACKSON METRO, THROUGH WEDNESDAY EVENING. 

Scattered showers will continue to flow in from the south through the evening hours; the storms will begin to gather to the west through the next several hours; eventually congealing into a squall line through the early morning hours of Wednesday. 

The line of storms may bring the opportunity of a few strong to severe storms along with it as well. Amid the heavy downpours, the potential for gusty winds and hail will exist with the strongest of storms - a brief, spin-up tornado can't be ruled out completely. The primary time-frame will be between 10 PM Tuesday through 9 AM Wednesday.

Rainfall totals could be between 2 - 4" through Wednesday afternoon - this could lead up to localized flooding concerns, especially in low-lying and poor-drainage locations; but should help out in the ongoing drought. 

Behind the front, expect temperatures to drop off from the 60s early on; into the 40s and 50s through the latter half of the day with a brisk northerly breeze taking hold. Showers, clouds will ease out of the area late - leading to sunshine returning by Thursday.
