Hot & humid today

Showers this weekend

Carrie's Midday First Alert Forecast

Today is going to be another hot and humid day with mostly sunny skies. It will become partly cloudy by the afternoon, and there will be a few pop-up showers, maybe even a thunderstorm. The heat index will be the biggest issue. Our heat index will climb over 100° and be as high as 108°+. Take your heat precautions today and Friday for sure.

By the weekend, the high pressure that has been keeping us fairly dry the past couple of days will move away from South Mississippi. A trough of low pressure will set up in the southeast which will allows some showers and storms to pop, mainly in the afternoon hours. It looks like there will be more cloud cover this weekend.

We are going to turn our attention north by the beginning of the new week. A front will approach the area bringing us higher rain chances. The models are not agreeing whether the front will make it through South Mississippi. IF it does, it would be a very rare mid-July break from the heat. We will watch and see.
