National Weather Service teams will be surveying areas hit by severe weather Thursday, officials said.

Damage was reported spread throughout the NWS Jackson’s coverage area, according to NWS meteorologist Nicholas Price. Most of the damage falls in the category of downed trees, roof damage, and flash flooding, he said.

A potential tornado was reported in Simpson County.

Temperatures will stay warm going into the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.

Price said Thursday will continue to clear for most of the coverage area, but there could be some lingering showers in the eastern counties of the Pine Belt. Highs should be in the 60s throughout the day.

On Friday, some showers are possible in the same area, though they should be isolated, Price said. The rest of the day should vary from sunny to mostly cloudy skies. The highs will be in the 60s Friday and going into the weekend.

For Saturday and Sunday, there’s a 40% chance of showers with wind gusts that will be up to 25 miles per hour.

Greenwood set a new record high on Wednesday with a value of 83 degrees, breaking the previous record of 80 degrees set back in 1957.
