JACKSON, Miss.–The rain you could see Thursday is not part of a typical afternoon thunderstorm type pattern. It could be a washout, but there likely won’t be severe weather today.
“Skies are gonna be cloudy most of the day and that’s gonna keep the atmosphere cool for this time of year. Highs are in the 80s,” said Alan Gerrard, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
“Anytime you get thunderstorms going on there’s gonna be a lot of lightening and heavy rain and maybe some local flooding.”
He said there’s a moist and unstable air mass across Mississippi for Thursday morning into Friday, bringing an increase in thunderstorms.
He said it should clear out by late Friday, bringing back a more typical summer pattern, with afternoon storms.
