**An Excessive Heat Warning is in effect for many counties in the Delta until 7pm today. A Heat Advisory is in effect for much of central Mississippi through Friday until 7pm.**
AM Commute: The sun comes up at 6:05AM and temperatures soar through the 70s and 80s! We'll be near 88° with a "feels like" temperature in the mid 90s by the 9:00 hour. Expect hazy skies giving way to mostly blue.
Afternoon: The heat is going to be brutal yet again. Highs today hit the mid and high 90s with the heat index at 105-110° for much of central MS. Areas in the Delta could feel as hot as 115°. The day is mainly dry with a chance for a storm well north of I-20. Take care of yourself- keep indoors in the AC in the afternoon hours and drink plenty of fluids.
This Weekend: As of now it looks like heat will only be increasing as we head through the weekend. High temperatures creep towards the century mark. We will likely see more Heat Advisories and possibly Excessive Heat Warnings on Saturday and Sunday. Make your plans now to keep cool, and avoid being outside too much this weekend!
