Mississippi Skies: Fantastic weather on the way for some lucky folks!

Published 9:46 pm Sunday, August 13, 2023

People in northern Mississippi and even into parts of central Mississippi are about to get a fantastic break from the miserable heat and humidity.

Monday will be oppressive and even dangerous for a lot of us with highs near 100 and heat index values up to 115 degrees, but Tuesday brings some big change for some of the state.

In the northern region, Tuesday will bring northerly winds up to 15 miles per hour and a high of only 80 under sunny skies! We may have a few places dip into the 50s for lows Tuesday and Wednesday nights, too!
