Mississippi Skies: Cool, breezy today; wildfire advisory in place for parts of the state

Published 1:30 am Monday, April 24, 2023

Today is going to be sunny, breezy, and dry for central and northern Mississippi today, and that’s the perfect recipe list for dangerous fire conditions.

The National Weather Service in Jackson has issued wildfire condition advisories for much of the northern half of the state. The advisory asks that people take extra caution with cigarettes, trailer chains, and other actions that can cause fires.

Otherwise, most of the state will continue with sunny to partly sunny skies, breezy conditions, and cool temperatures before several days of rain move into the state.
