The weekend continued to be a scorcher with 100 degree temperatures for a second day.
At the Ross Barnett Reservoir Sunday it was about taking a dip in the waters to cool down from the sizzling heat.
They were seeking relief on jet skis by splashing in the waters.
Factoring in heat and humidity, it felt like 105 to 110.
Sunday morning's low temperature was 79 degrees, breaking the record for the warmest low set in 1969.
A dome of hot air is sitting over central Mississippi prompting the National Weather Service to issue heat advisories.
It was a good reason for those at the reservoir to take the plunge.
"We're just staying cool you know, just every hour or so just jumping in the water, just chilling. Don't do anything strenuous out here until it cools down because it puts extreme stress on you. You don't need that," said Clay Williams, a reservoir swimmer.
A heat advisory is in effect until Monday evening.
This means dangerous temperatures could lead to heat related illnesses.
You should drink plenty of fluids, limit your activities and stay out of the sun.
