Jackson, Miss.-- The colder temperatures that have been talked about for the first couple days of the work week have finally arrived this morning.
Most of the state dropped down into the upper 40's and low 50's in the overnight hours and more of the same looks to happen Wednesday night.
Meteorologist Michael Edmonston says, "And the cooler, dryer air and colder temperatures look to last at least into the weekend right now."
After the low pressure system from Texas moved out of the area, taking its rain with it, cooler air took its place last night.
Edmonston added, "It looks like there could be a reinforcing cold front dropping in the scenario for Saturday or Sunday."
With another possible reinforcing cold front on the way, even though temperatures will jump back up by the weekend, they'll be knocked down once again below seasonal averages.
The moisture associated with the system is gone for a while as sunny skies are expected almost state-wide until at least Sunday.
