Although Heat Advisories are in place for a few of our counties south of I-20, today's heat and humidity will be much more bearable in comparison to what we dealt with Monday and Tuesday. This all thanks to a summertime cold front pushing south through the state. Central Mississippi, including the metro, is dealing with the brunt of the rain so far heading into the lunch hour so be sure to bring the umbrella with you in case you run into any of these downpours!

As the day wears on, areas along and south of I-20 will stand the best chance at seeing showers and storms by the time we pick up the kids from school and drive home from work. Some of these storms could be strong-severe, with damaging wind gusts and heavy rain the greatest concerns.

The front will push south of us tonight, but lower humidity won’t move in until Thursday and Friday! Just keep in mind that it will still be very hot, despite our more comfortable conditions. Eventually, our front will lift back north into the weekend, bringing scattered showers and storms back into the forecast for the end of the weekend.
