Mississippi Skies: Much more pleasant Sunday for some. How long will it last?

Published 9:56 pm Saturday, July 22, 2023

If you’ve been wanting to be able to enjoy the outdoors without feeling miserable, Sunday is a great opportunity for most of the state, especially the farther north one goes. Northern Mississippi will be sunny with a nice breeze with highs in the 80s. Central and southern Mississippi will also be breezy and a few degrees cooler. Humidity will be a few points lower, too. Sure, the 90s in southern Mississippi aren’t cool, but we’ll take what we can get in July!

The only region of the state that won’t be mostly sunny is the Gulf Coast. There will be plenty more storms in our southern counties.

Unfortunately, the cooler temps won’t last very long. We’ll be back into the mid to upper-90s in just a few days with increasing humidity levels.

Don has strengthened into a hurricane in the Atlantic. It remains more of an Atlantic Ocean shipping problem than one for land.

The other system that we’ve been watching has actually decreased in the possibility of forming into an organized storm. We’ll keep watching as the group of storms continues moving westward in the southern Atlantic.
