Hot 4th of July Weekend

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

We need rain! Most of area is seeing moderate drought conditions, but south Mississippi is in a severe to extreme drought.

There is a slight chance for isolated thunderstorms each afternoon. While I don't expect storms to reach severe levels, you'll definitely want to watch out for lightning and head indoors if you hear thunder. Any storms that develop will end by mid-evening.

We will continue to see hot temperatures through this holiday weekend. Highs will remain in the mid to upper 90s through the 4th of July. Nighttime lows will be in the 70s.
