It was hot again today with temps in the mid 90s and feels like temps up to 110°. The above-normal heat prompted another Heat Advisory today until 6 PM. We have seen some strong thunderstorms in South Mississippi, and we expect more showers and storms later this evening. Some of the thunderstorms could produce gusty winds, heavy rain and frequent lightning. It’s not expected to be quite as hot over the next few days because of more cloud cover and showers. You can plan on muggy start with rain-free hours but pop-up showers and storms will be likely Thursday and Friday.
This is going to be the last hot day for a while! We'll be in the low to mid 90s this afternoon with plenty of sunshine. A cold front will bring in cooler and drier air late tonight. It's going to be much more refreshing this week with lows in the 50s and 60s. Highs will be in the mid 80s with lots of sunshine. It will be breezy, too. Hurricane Ian is gathering strength quickly, and will impact Florida by midweek.
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.
