First Alert Forecast: dangerous heat possible this weekend
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - It’s hot and steamy out today! High temperatures will reach the lower and middle 90′s with heat indices in the triple digits. Some spots could see feels like temperatures around 105-110. As of a result, a Heat Advisory will be in effect until 7 PM this evening for the concern of heat stress. Isolated to scattered showers and storms are also in the forecast for this afternoon/evening. These downpours will help temporarily cool some of us off.
Similar conditions will carry into Sunday as ridging and high pressure hold strong over the region. High temperatures will top out near 95 degrees with feels like temperatures above 100 degrees. Since dangerous heat will be possible, Heat Advisories will go into effect for a portion of the area tomorrow as well. There will also be a low-end chance for a few pop-up downpours tomorrow afternoon/evening as well.
The muggy and hot weather pattern is expected to stick around with us into the upcoming work week. There will also be a daily chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms each day.
