GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Temperatures in Stone County could top the 100 degree mark. The scorching heat is why an excessive heat warning remains in place through Monday night

Across the coastal counties, temperatures are forecast to be in the mid to upper 90s. An excessive heat warning is in place through Monday night as heat indices over the next two afternoons will rise between 105 and 112 degrees.

Meteorologists in the WLOX 24/7 Weather center say a slight chance of afternoon showers and storms do exist over the next two afternoons. And those storms could be strong to severe, with potentially damaging winds, 

A storm like that raced across the coast Saturday. It knocked out power to thousands of coast residents. And it forced the suspension of the Shuckers baseball game versus Mississippi. That game will resume today in the sixth inning, prior to Sunday's regularly scheduled contest.

Temperatures through the rest of the week will be in the low to mid 90s with a slim chance for rain each day as we remain in a very summer-like pattern.
