JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - It feels warm out today in the upper 80s and low 90s, but it’s not miserably hot out this afternoon thanks to lower humidity levels. Expect bright, warm, and comfy conditions through the rest of your Saturday. All outdoor activities that you have planned for today will be all good to go!

We should see similar conditions during the day on Sunday with potentially a slight chance for hit and miss showers tomorrow afternoon and it feeling a bit more humid out. Rain and storm chances are forecast to increase late Sunday and on Monday as a front drops into the region. This front will fade by Tuesday, but another one could move in by mid-week bringing another chance for rain. Drier and slightly cooler air could filter in across the region by late week behind this frontal boundary.

Hurricane Larry is now a Major Category 3 Hurricane this morning. The latest track still has Larry moving through the Atlantic to the northwest over the coming days and could potentially pose a threat to Bermuda later this week. We are also closely monitoring a disturbance that will move over the Gulf through the weekend. It only has a low chance for tropical formation right now.
