JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Tropical Depression Fred continues to impact areas to the north and east of us with heavy rain and severe weather. Fred will continue weaken through today as it pushes northward. Here at home, it will be very summery with hot and humid conditions. High temperatures will be near average in the low 90s. There will be an opportunity for a few isolated showers or storms this afternoon/evening, but it looks like most of us will stay dry.

Similar conditions will follow through the rest of the work week with daily afternoon chances for downpours and seasonable highs. By the weekend and into next week, temperatures are expected to trend warmer with highs in the mid 90s. It will definitely feel hotter and steamier out!

Tropical Storm Grace is still expected to stay south of the US will be more of a problem for Mexico. The latest forecast track has Grace becoming hurricane strength by tomorrow morning over the Caribbean. Tropical Storm Henri is currently SSE of Bermuda and will stay out over the Atlantic not posing a threat to the US.
