Triple digits through Friday - - Jackson, MS

Triple digits through Friday

Posted: Updated:

Heat Warnings are in effect through Thursday evening for much of central and north Mississippi. Heat Advisories are in effect across south Mississippi through Thursday.

A large dome of high pressure will continue to pump hot and very muggy conditions into our area for the rest of the week. This high pressure will also make it difficult for afternoon showers to develop.

Highs through Friday will be in the lower 100s, with heat indices around 115 at times.

By the weekend, the high will weaken and shift to the west away from Mississippi. This will allow for cooler high temperatures, in the middle to upper 90s, and some relief to the high heat index values. There also a better chance for afternoon showers this weekend.
