Storms & Heat Make For A Bad Mix

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

This morning the dense fog to the south, particularly in Pike and southern Lincoln counties will slow down traffic on I-55. Isolated T-storm in north Mississippi (near Memphis/Starkville/Columbus) will also cause some traffic delay to our north. For the rest of us, we'll see sunshine warm us up quickly to the lower 90s and winds west at 10-15 mph.

Tonight there will be an increase in clouds and the winds will die down. A stationary front to our north will slowly fall south and increase our chances of rain for tomorrow. We'll still have a very slight chance of a light sprinkle in central Mississippi. However, there's an even better chance of rain for tomorrow afternoon.

Tomorrow's chances of rain goes up to 40%,  with a good chance of some of the storms turning severe. Highs are expected to climb to the lower 90s, and combined with an afternoon arrival time of the storms, could make for a very volatile mix. We'll keep you posted on any dramatic and dangerous turns in our weather on WLBT, WLBT.COM, Facebook and twitter.
