Heat Advisory with afternoon storms
There is a heat advisory in effect for all of South Mississippi until 7 PM this evening. It is going to be hot and humid again today before we see some rain popping up. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 90s with heat index values over 100°. We do expect a little more coverage with the rain this afternoon and into the evening, so your evening commute could be a damp one. Not everyone will see rain. It does look like more people than the past couple of days will see rain and a few thunderstorms. Some storms will produce heavy downpours and gusty winds.
Rain chances diminish tonight, and it will remain warm and humid with lows in the mid 70s. Thursday’s temperatures will soar quickly. There is a Heat Advisory in place for the three coastal counties Thursday, as well. We will see hit and miss showers and storms. We’ll warm up into the low 90s by the afternoon. Rain chances will be a little lower by Friday and Saturday, but it’s going to be hotter. Highs will be in the mid to upper 90s.
In the tropics, no new development is expected in the next five days.
