JACKSON, Miss. – You may have noticed the weather is significantly cooler than it was last week. Last week the state was seeing high temperatures in the mid to upper 90s with a heat index near 105. This week high temperatures are closer to the mid 80s.
“We have an area of low pressure over the area, its bringing in cooler air from the north. We are getting that northerly flow out of Canada. It will probably be in the area through Wednesday morning,” said National Weather Meteorologist Mark McAlester.
He says lows could be in the lower 60s across the state for tonight and tomorrow night and a few spots up north may see temperatures in the upper 50s.
McAlister says when that low-pressure system starts moving west, the state will begin to see more moisture, bringing in muggy conditions and higher temperatures.
