Tonight will remain calm, but warm and humid. Morning lows will be in the low to mid 70s. Summer just will not give up! Thursday will be one of the hottest days of the week with highs in the mid to upper 90s. Hardly any rain is expected, but some will see a few isolated showers. Most of us will see more sunshine. Fall officially begins after sunset at 8:03 PM on Thursday, but it won’t feel like it. Temps will only drop into the low to mid 70s by Friday morning. A strong ridge of high pressure will keep a tight grip on South Mississippi over the next day or so. By Friday and especially Saturday, the high pressure will start to weaken allowing our temps to drop back into the the low 90s. But that is still above average and hot. We will also see few more scattered showers possible. A front looks like it could bring some relief next week, but all eyes will be focused on the tropics as Invest 98 L is forecast to head toward the southern Gulf of Mexico in the Tuesday/Wednesday timeframe.
