Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

We are starting off Thursday with gorgeous conditions in South Mississippi compared to what we've dealt with the last few days. Today temperatures start off in the 50s across much of the area under a mostly clear sky. Dew points are very low this morning, meaning it is also less humid to start our day than what we had the last few days. We will stay dry today with no chance for rain. Temperatures this afternoon rise into the lower 80s under plenty of sunshine, making for a great day. As we move into Friday and Saturday our dew points will be back on the rise with humidity making a strong comeback. Temperatures for Friday will bring lows in the 60s and highs in the 80s. For Saturday we won't have any rain chances, but it will be very humid with temperatures rising into the mid to upper 80s. With temperatures that high and high humidity to go along with it, our heat indices will be in the 90s. Be sure to drink plenty of water and wear plenty of sunscreen if you will be out on Saturday. For Sunday the upper level ridge, which is responsible for our dry and warm weather through Saturday, will start to move east and our rain chances will slowly make a return. Sunday only brings a slight chance for a few brief showers, but on Monday our rain chances will go up for Memorial Day with lows in the 70s and highs in the 80s. Rain chances stay fairly high into Tuesday as well. Don't forget to download the WLOX First Alert Weather App for the latest update to the forecast whenever you are on the go.
