We're seeing more showers and storms develop this morning. Heavy rainfall will be possible along with frequent lightning. However, not everyone will see heavy rain. It's already hot and humid with temperatures in the upper 80s. Each day this week will bring a chance for showers and storms.
This week, a major hurricane in the east Gulf will target Florida with possibly devastating impacts. With Ian off to our east, this will help to pull down drier & cooler air on the MS Coast for us most of this week.
It's going to heat up quickly today, and we'll be back in the low 90s this afternoon. A few isolated showers are possible in the afternoon and evening, but many of us will stay dry. A cold front will bring cooler and drier air by the middle of the week. We're also closely watching Tropical Storm Ian. It could become a major hurricane in the Gulf this week. While its impacts are expected to stay east of us, we're going to monitor it.
