And the Heat & Heating Showers, Roll On...

Posted: Updated:

Heat Advisory Today

Another round of storms is likely to provide a cool rain during the oppressive heat of the day. Expect a high near 99 degrees for today.

The UV Index has gotten a little better at a level of 10, which is still at dangerously high levels. However we have stepped away from the 'extreme' category.

Our chances of rain has gone on the increase for today, up to a 70% chance of isolated showers. Wednesday we had reports of wind damage in Ellisville, Brookhaven and Hattiesburg. Some of today's storms could cause the same concern.

Tonight we drop to the mid 70s with most of the rain coming to an end; with a repeat of the heat for tomorrow.

Friday is likely to start off not quite as muggy, but still end up in the upper 90s for the highs. Winds will be out of the north west around 5 mph, becoming southeast in the afternoon. The chance of rain 70%. And the highest heat index reading 100-104.
