Mississippi Skies: Heat increasing in Mississippi as we continue watching Don in the Atlantic

Published 10:58 pm Saturday, July 15, 2023

Rain chances flip regions Sunday as northern Mississippi stays mostly dry and southern Mississippi has widespread storms.

We’ll all be hot with heat indexes in the triple digits. Unfortunately, Sunday and Monday are the “coolest” days of the week as our temperatures prepare to climb even higher. Get ready to crank up the air conditioners and have a little extra water in the fridge.

We’re still watching Subtropical Storm Don. The National Hurricane Center expects Don to weaken into a depression later Sunday, circle a few days, and strengthen back to a storm around Wednesday night. We’ll know more about its path later in the week.
