Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

Rain chances take a backseat as the temperatures crank back up across central Mississippi through the middle and latter parts of the week. Expect mostly to partly sunny skies with highs in the middle 90s, feeling closer to 100 - 105° this afternoon. Tonight, mostly to partly clear skies with lows in the lower and middle 70s. The heat sticks around for Thursday and may be even hotter than your Wednesday – with highs in the middle 90s, feeling like 102 - 108°. The heat will ease as a front drops into the region by late Friday into Saturday, bringing a better chance for storms back to the region and slightly cooler temperatures for the weekend. A typical July pattern expected through early next week with highs in the lower 90s, with hit and miss storm chances.
