Summer Heat Hits Ahead of Schedule

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Partly Sunny, 94°

The heat of today is not the beginning of summer, even if it feels that way. Expect highs to reach into the mid to upper 90s for the next few days in a row.

The record highs for this time of the year is within range for the next few days in a row. Heat index numbers will hit triple digits, a bit ahead of schedule. Summer doesn't official start until June 21st. And the chances of rain will hold off until the end of the work week.

The Mississippi River is still slowly falling. The latest measurements as of the 4am readings is as follows: Natchez 59.04, Vicksburg 52.98, and Greenville 56.92. The Yazoo river readings this morning were 35.65 in Yazoo City and 28.41 in Belzoni.

Levels are continuing to slowly fall at most locations. And with warmer than usual weather expected, perhaps a little evaporation may help a bit as well.
