Fire Weather Watch, Cooler Weather to Stay for a Few Days

JACKSON, Miss.–Because of dry conditions and high winds expected to last through the weekend, the entire state of Mississippi is under a fire weather watch. Outdoor burning is strongly discouraged through the entire weekend.

There is also a high fire danger for several Mississippi counties, including Bolivar, Sunflower, Leflore, Grenada, Carroll, Montgomery, Webster, Clay, Lowndes, Choctaw, Oktibbeha, Holmes, Humphreys, Washington, Attala, Winston, Noxubee, Issaquena, Sharkey, Yazoo, Leake, Neshoba, Kemper, Warren, Hinds, Rankin, Scott, Lauderdale, Newton, Claiborne, Copiah, Simpson, Smith, Jasper, Clarke, Jefferson, Adams, Lincoln, Lawrence, Jeff Davis, Covington, Jones, Marion, Lamar and Forrest.

For several north Mississippi counties, there is an elevated fire danger. That includes DeSoto, Tallahatchie, Lafayette, Yalobusha, Lee, Monroe, Tate, Tippah, Pontotoc, Panola, Prentiss, Quitman, Marshall, Benton, Alcorn, Itawamba, Tishomingo and Tunica counties.

For north Mississippi it will stay dry and be much cooler this weekend. Today’s high in 74, but look for 60s Saturday and Sunday.

It will take another day for the cool weather to move into central and south Mississippi. You’ll still see upper 80s to near 90 today. Saturday and Sunday’s highs will be in the 70s.

Don’t expect any significant rain chances until late next week.
