A slight chance of rain will go on the increase for this afternoon as we raise our chances from a meager 20% to an impressive 40% chance of isolated T-storms. Highs will reach into the upper 90s and the Heat Advisory for northern Mississippi counties will stay in effect for today.
Heat index numbers are expected to climb to 101-109 in north Mississippi, and possibly reaching us here in the metro area. Winds will be from the north at 5-10mph.
Tonight we'll have scattered clouds in place with what few showers that may be active coming to an end. The winds are from the north and will begin to die down; making for a cooler set up during the overnight period.
Lows will be in the lower 70s during the overnight hours.
Tomorrow and over the weekend the chances of rain will hover between 40-60% chances. Our highs will take a dip to the lower 90s, closer to the norm for this time of the year.
And by Sunday we may fall BELOW THE NORMAL TEMPS for this time of year... been a while since we've been able to say that.
