JULIA'S FORECAST: Rain & storms again tonight

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Did the thunder keep you awake overnight? The majority of the rain and thunder has exited our area, but we're still expecting a few spotty showers through the day. Otherwise, we should warm up into the mid and high 70s this afternoon.

As we work into the late afternoon, showers have the capability of developing into thunderstorms. However, the greatest threat for storm activity will take place as we head into the overnight. Storms have the likelihood of becoming strong to severe with damaging winds, hail, and heavy rain. Our wind concerns are for damaging gusts that can take down tree branches and power lines, and even cause some damage to buildings. Hail has the potential to damage cars, so it's best to keep your vehicle in a protected garage if possible. With regard to flooding concerns, any heavy downpour will only add to the already saturated grounds. Poor drainage areas will flood easily. Stay on alert by checking back here for updates.
 
Leftover showers are possible Saturday morning, but they'll clear out quickly. Overall it's going to be a quiet and pleasant weekend with sunshine and highs in the low to mid 70s.
