Hot and Muggy on Saturday

Weather Update – 10:00 p.m. Friday

Skies will stay mainly clear overnight with light winds from the south but temperatures will only drop to the upper 50s and lower 60s by early Saturday. Compared to the upper 40s we had this morning, that’s warm! To plan for your weekend, know that we expect a hot and slightly muggy day on Saturday with temperatures in the middle to upper 80s under sunny skies in the afternoon.

However, a little bit of humidity could make temperatures feel like the lower 90s during the afternoon. The record high for Jackson on Saturday is 89°F (1963) so we’ll be close! This will be followed by a cold front on Sunday bringing our next chance for scattered showers and windy conditions. It’s worth mentioning that showers are all we expect, thunderstorms are not likely with little to no energy in the forecast to produce them. Then next week it gets colder, and we could reach temperatures we’ve not seen since early Spring! The forecast low Monday night into Tuesday morning – 40°F!
