Heat advisory this weekend

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The heat dome is centered over us this weekend. This will mean many areas will see some of the hottest temperatures of the week.

I expect lots of sunshine this weekend. Highs both days will be in the upper 90s to near 100. Heat indices will range from 100° to 105° for most areas, but areas along the Mississippi River will have heat indices over 105°. This will make heat stress worse in those areas. Nighttime lows will not drop below the middle 70s.

The pattern will begin to change by the middle of next week. Signs are pointing to better rain chances and cooler temperatures. Let's hope so!
