Today marks the last day of summer! It will be warm and breezy again with highs in the upper 80s. A nice southeast wind could cause minor coastal flooding through the morning. Most of the day will be dry, but a few spotty showers are possible. Rain chances will decrease tonight. Lows will be in the upper 60s and low 70s.
Fall begins on Monday, but it will be very warm. Highs will be in the low 90s Monday through Wednesday. Little to no rain is expected.
In the tropics, there are several areas that we’re watching. Tropical Storm Karen formed this morning near the Windward Islands. It is expected to move north into the Caribbean and back into the Atlantic. It is not a threat to South Mississippi at this time, but we will monitor it for any changes. Tropical Storm Jerry is well south of Bermuda. It will continue to move north into the Atlantic and it is not a threat to the U.S. Finally, a tropical wave off the coast of Africa will likely become a tropical depression or tropical storm within the next few days. It is not a threat to the U.S. at this point.
