Mississippi Skies: Weather advisory for most of the state, but not for storms this time

Published 10:13 pm Friday, July 14, 2023

There’s only one region of the state with decent rain chances Saturday and that’s the only area not under a heat advisory.

Northern Mississippi will wake up with widespread showers and storms. Some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall.

The rest of the state will be mostly dry Saturday with only a few isolated showers and thunderstorms. The lack of rainfall will certainly be felt as heat index values go above 100 and as high as 110.
