The past couple of days have been some of the hottest days we have seen in quite some time. Temps will fall off somewhat once the sunsets at 6:53 PM. The, Fall officially begins at 8:03 PM this evening. Tonight will be warm and a bit humid. A cold front to our north could spark a few showers later this evening, but most of South Mississippi will not see any rain. The cold front will help our temps a bit, making them not as hot and in the low 90s, but that is still above average. So, it will still be hot but not as hot and a little less humid through the weekend. We will see a slight chance for some isolated to scattered showers through Monday. Next week, we will see a more potent front move through that area. That front will lower our temps and humidity; plus, it may help to steer potential storms away from South Mississippi. But we will keep a close eye on the tropics and the development of Invest 98L as it could enter the Gulf of Mexico next week.
It was another cool start with temps in the 50s. Today will be sunny and dry with highs near 80 degrees, so it will be a little warmer than yesterday. The winds are settling somewhat over land. There is a Small Craft Advisory in effect in our coastal waters through this evening. Tonight will be clear, pleasant and cool with lows in the 50s. The weekend looks beautiful and a little warmer with a gradual increase in the humidity. But, overall, it will still be very nice. It looks dry through next week.

It was another beautiful fall day in South Mississippi. Highs stayed in the 70s. The breezy north winds at 10 to 20 mph keeps a Fire Weather Warning in place until 6 PM tonight. Due to lack of recent rainfall, very low humidity, and breezy conditions, any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. Outdoor burning is not recommended. Tonight will be another chilly night with lows in the upper 40s and low to mid 50s. We are expecting a gradual increase in temperatures and humidity over the next seven days. But the morning will still be cool to pleasant with sunny and warm afternoons. Ian is in the Atlantic off the east coast of Florida and heading to the north. It weakened to a Tropical Storm but is now hurricane again. Landfall is forecast near Charleston, SC, by midday Friday. Also, Tropical Depression Eleven formed in the Atlantic yesterday. T.D. Eleven poses no threat to land and is already post-tropical. It will continue to fall apart as it drifts northwestward over the open waters of the Atlantic. Hurricane season officially ends on November 30.
