JACKSON, Miss.–We call it Mississippi weather. There’s a high of 29 one day and two days later it’s back in the 60s. You can look for that today and near or above 70 for Saturday.
News Mississippi wanted to know how that can happen, though, so the National Weather Service was the logical place to go.
“We had a very good dowsing of cold air,” said Meteorologist Allen Campbell. He said that came with winds from the north.
“As that continues to shift off to the east, we’re gonna see those surface winds and the winds throughout the atmosphere become more southerly.”
You can look for Friday’s highs to be in the upper 50s to near 60. Saturday it’s mid 60s to near 70, but rain chances come back into the picture.
Sunday’s high temps range from near 50 north, to 70 or above south and on the coast, with a good shot of rain throughout the whole state.
