JACKSON, Miss.-- Now that the severe storms have moved out of the state from Christmas day there's changes already taking place with the weather.
Wind will be the big storm today in the state with gusts no that the front has pushed through.
Meteorologist Mike Edmonston says,"We're still looking at wind gust at 15-25 mph." And that number could be greater in some parts of the state so be careful while on the roadways.
Not only is the wind making things unpleasant to say the least around Mississippi, the temperatures have taken a nose dive.
"It's going to be cold today compared to what it has been the last several days," added Edmonston.
Highs today will range anywhere from the upper 30's in the northern half of the state like Tupelo into the mid-40's for place in central Mississippi like Jackson.
Tonight the skies will clear out according to Edmonston and that means brutal cold weather.
"We're going to range in the lower 20's in northern Mississippi and upper 20's even in southern Mississippi tonight."
It might not be a bad idea to drip your pipes tonight before you go to sleep in many areas to keep them from possibly busting.
Our next greatest chance for rain will come on Friday. There is already a 50% chance of rain for many places and temperatures will warm up a bit on Thursday and Friday in anticipation of that moisture moving into the state.
