JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - A few showers or thunderstorms will remain possible early on before we trend drier overnight. We will stay warm and humid tonight with low temperatures expected to fall to the middle 70s under mostly to partly cloudy skies.
With a tropical airmass in place and the intense heating of the day, showers and storms are forecast to also develop into Tuesday, mainly during the afternoon and early evening hours. If you aren’t seeing the rain, you will feel the heat! Temperatures will top out in the lower to middle 90s with it likely feeling more like the 100s. Heat indices tomorrow could peak between 105-110 in some spots.
Dangerous heat levels will continue over the coming days as ridging start to strengthen overhead. In fact, feels like temperatures could rise above 110 degrees by late week/early weekend. Stay cool, hydrated, and take frequent breaks when spending long periods of time outdoors over the days ahead! Rain chances will be limited through during the time ahead of better chances over the weekend as a frontal system nears from the north.
