ALERT DAY: heat stress continues to impact central Mississippi
ALERT DAY for heat indices, for some, above 110° (Source: WLBT)

Today is another ALERT DAY as heat indices are expected to reach around 110 degrees this afternoon! Although a few showers and storms could form across the area and cool some of us off, these are not looking widespread in nature & not everyone will see rain. Wednesday will be another steamy day with similar feels-like temperatures, but scattered storms are more likely by the evening drive home.

Our ridge of high pressure aloft will continue to flatten and expand eastward through the week, which will allow hot conditions to persist through the 7-day. A couple of disturbances working from the east to the west will allow for our scattered shower and storm chances tomorrow & again into the end of the weekend. Stay tuned for forecast updates!
