First Alert Forecast: toasty Friday; humidity creeps back in through weekend

We're finishing the work and school week on a dry and sunny note! High pressure is in control over the region and winds out of the north continue to allow for drier conditions here in Central and SW Mississippi... Expect highs in the upper 90s this afternoon, feeling only like the low 100s in comparison to the steamy 110-118° range felt earlier this week.

Winds return out of the south as we head into the weekend, however, increasing our mugginess once again. This will aid in isolated shower and storm development in our southernmost counties Saturday, scattered shower and storm development for all of us by Sunday. Highs will reach the mid-upper 90s Saturday afternoon, but by the second half of the weekend, temperatures are only looking to lift into the low-mid 90s.

The upcoming work and school week will follow the same trend as scattered showers and storms will be likely each afternoon and evening, and highs will lift into the low-mid 90s!

First Alert Forecast: hot, steamy Friday; humidity returns into weekend
