The next few days are likely to be really uncomfortable, not because of hurricane remnants, but due to sunshine. A heat advisory has been issued for the delta and northern portions of our viewing area including, Issaquena, Sharkey, Humphreys, Sunflower, Washington and Boliver counties. Highs will be in the lower 90s, but the heat index will climb to near 100 degrees. Winds will be SW 10-15 mph with a slight chance of rain for this afternoon at a 20% chance at best.
Tonight the moisture during the day will keep it a bit muggy during the overnight period. Temps will only fall into the mid 70s, keeping the heat index in the 80s during most of the evening hours. Our chances of rain are not expected to elevate at all, with the best chances during the 'early' evening hours. Winds will become light, and still push from the south at 5-10 mph.
Tomorrow the concern for the heat continues with highs expected to stay in the mid 90s for Tuesday and the heat index expected to rise above 100 degrees. Our chances of rain go on the increase as well. Expect a 30% chance of isolated showers and T-storms. Winds will continue to push from the south at 10-15mph.
