JACKSON, Mississippi (WJTV) – Here is the weather forecast for October 20, 2016 for Jackson, Mississippi from WJTV.
Rain is in the forecast but meteorologist Terran Kirksey says it is still not enough to make “…enough to cut into the deficit that we have built up since the beginning of September.” He says that we are still over five inches below average in rainfall for this time of year.
More rain is on the way, though. A cold front is headed in the direction of Jackson.
The drought continues throughout most of the state. Burn bans are still in effect. Kirksey says that, even if a burn ban is not in effect for a particular county, it is “…still an absolutely terrible idea to do any type of outdoor burning until we get a decent amount of rain here.”
