JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – With officials recommending outdoor Thanksgiving gatherings this year, the weather will likely play a big factor in your holiday week plans. A storm system is expected to push through the Southeast mid week, which could impact some plans. Here is your day by day regional forecast from Storm Team 12.
Thanksgiving Day – Sunny and Mild with Showers South
Thanksgiving Day will only be dry across portions of the Southeast, with a front stalling out along the Gulf Coast. Scattered showers are a possibility from New Orleans to Biloxi to the Panhandle. No rain is expected in Central Mississippi though, as highs are seasonably warm in the lower 70s. Skies will be sunny & temperatures in the 60s for north Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee.
Black Friday – Heavy Rain Arrives & Lasts Through Weekend
Rain chances increase once again on Black Friday, as the stationary front pushes north away from the Gulf Coast. Scattered showers and rumbles of thunder will be likely from Texas to Alabama along the Interstate 20 corridor, including in Jackson. Temperatures will stay mild and warm in the lower 70s. The front is expected to stall over Central Mississippi as we go into the weekend, which will lead to daily rain chances. Up to 3-4 inches of rain could be possibly by this Sunday.
