Another day of steam will be the main focus of today's weather with a slight chance of rain in the mix. Typical summer time heat cranks up for this afternoon, heat index numbers will climb back to triple digits.
Isolated t-storms from Wednesday actually knocked out some power in isolated areas, particularly in Hinds County. Folk near Byram learned how potent a spot storm can be, the lost power in some area for a short period of time.
Today's possibility of storms will hold the same potential of quick forming storms with some possible impact on power lines. We could see some winds accelerate to 45 mph.
An early look at the models show that the weekend is going to get warmer, with a very limited opportunity for showers state wide. The best chances of rain is still connected to afternoon heating going into the early evening hours.
