It’s going to be a scorcher today! We’ll warm up into the mid to upper 90s, and the heat index could get as high as 105-110. A Heat Advisory will be in effect for Hancock, Harrison, and Jackson Counties. Isolated showers and storms are possible late this afternoon and evening.

A few showers and storms may linger overnight tonight. It will be warm and muggy with lows only in the upper 70s.

Monday and Tuesday will be hot and humid with highs in the low to mid 90s. Hit or miss showers and storms are possible. We’ll see scattered showers and storms by Wednesday and Thursday with highs near 90.

Tropical Storm Henri is going to make landfall near Long Island and in the New England area today. It will quickly weaken once it moves inland. There is also a tropical wave in the Eastern Atlantic that has a low chance of becoming a depression. It is currently not a Gulf Coast threat.
