Will we finally get a dry weekend? The answer is mostly yes! Except for a few isolated shower or thunderstorms, especially in south Mississippi, most of us will remain dry for at least the next couple of days. Unfortunately, that also means plenty of sunshine to heat up that humid air for dangerous heat indexes for many of us. Some places will feel as hot as 110!
Tropical Depression Four formed Thursday, so we’re now watching two tropical systems. Tropical Storm Bret is still moving west, but models are becoming more confident that the storm may get torn apart before getting too close to the Gulf of Mexico.
TD Four is moving in a similar path as Bret, but models show that storm curving north away from the Gulf.
