Tonight will be clear and a bit humid and mild with lows in the 60s and 70s. A high pressure system to our north will allow another round of some serious heat in South Mississippi. Tuesday will be hot with a little lower humidity, so feels like temps will only be in the upper 90s to near 100. We could see some afternoon showers and storms. Those who see some rain, will also get some relief from the heat.

Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 90s this week with feels like temps in the 100s. It looks like a break in the temps by the weekend, but it will still be hot with temps in the upper 80s to low 90s.

Hurricane Fiona is forecast to become a major hurricane Tuesday. It is projected to impact Bermuda by late Thursday. It should be around the Canadian Maritime Provinces by this weekend. The invest in the central Atlantic has a medium chance for development, but it doesn’t look like it will affect land, at this time. The area with a low chance for development in the Atlantic Basin is the area we are going to keep a close eye on over the next five to ten days. Models are not agreeing on track, but they do seem to agree on something forming. We will keep tracking this wave.
