Today will be another typical summer day! We’ll warm up into the low 90s this afternoon, and it will be very humid. Hit or miss showers and storms are possible. Some showers and storms are possible late tonight into Monday morning. Lows will be in the 70s.

The remnants of Fred organized back into a tropical storm this morning. Tropical Storm Fred is expected to make landfall Monday night or Tuesday morning. Its latest forecast track has shifted back to the east. Landfall is going to be more likely somewhere along Alabama or the Florida Panhandle. If Fred does track east of us, we’ll miss out on the heaviest rain and strongest wind. However, will will see the breeze pick up from the east and northeast through Monday. A Coastal Flood Advisory will be in effect Sunday evening through Tuesday morning. Minor flooding of 1-3′ is possible along east facing shores. Monday may bring a few showers on the outskirts of Fred. It’ll be hot with highs near 90.

Tropical Storm Grace is moving through the Caribbean this morning, and it is near Puerto Rico. It will continue to move through the Caribbean this week, but it is forecast to move into the Gulf by the end of the week. It’s too early to know if it will be a threat to South Mississippi, but we’ll closely watch it.
