Steamy Showers Expected Again

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

The moisture in the atmosphere continues to feed the possibility of storms for us in the afternoon hours. It's the combination of the heat and moisture and proximity of the stationary front that helps this to happen.

We have at least a 50%  chance of rain for today, with highs reaching into the  mid to upper 90s. The heat index will approach the 100 degree mark.

Our chances of rain will stay at least up to 30% chances over the next few days in a row. This is a vast difference from the drought pattern we've had in the last few months.

The lack of rain helped with our recovery from the flood of 2011, however the lack of precipitation has put a significant strain on farmers in other areas of the state. Thus far July is proving to be a bit kinder to farmers and those in 'need' of showers.

Long range models indicate we have a slight to moderate chance of showers for the next 7-10 days. So the promise of more rain is looking favorable thus far.
