Mississippi Skies: Nice day for some, storms for others to begin the week

Published 9:42 pm Sunday, July 9, 2023

Monday is shaping up to be a beautiful day in northern and central Mississippi. We’ll have plenty of sunshine, a nice breeze, and cooler temperatures with highs only in the mid-80s. It’s still going to be “hot,” but much more comfortable than a normal July day for the northern half.

In the southern half, we’ll still be dealing with rain and storms. South Mississippi will have rain in the morning, then becoming more isolated in the afternoon. Along the Gulf Coast, we’ll have showers and storms pretty much all day. We’ll also have plenty of heat and heat indexes to keep things steamy outside.

The tropics remain quiet with no chances for development the next couple of days.
