      Today's Forecast

      Today's Forecast Image

      A hot and steamy Memorial Day Weekend... Humidity is increasing as the warming trend continues. Highs soar to near 90 Saturday and Sunday, and when combined with the humidity, it will feel like middle to upper 90s both afternoons.

      For Saturday, a mix of sun and clouds along with the possibility for a brief passing storm.

      Storms increase in North Mississippi during the day Sunday, then will move into Central and South Mississippi Sunday evening into Memorial Day, leading to periods of rain and storms. We are not expecting a Memorial Day washout, but be prepared for delays if you have outdoor activities. And please remember, if you can hear thunder, lightning is close enough to strike, whether it's raining at your location or not.
