Mississippi Skies: Wednesday could be the hottest day so far
Published 9:13 pm Tuesday, August 22, 2023
Are you ready for 106 degrees in real temperatures before adding in heat index values? Parts of Mississippi will hit the highest temps of the season so far Wednesday with Thursday threatening to go even higher.
Every region of the state will more than likely hit the triple digits in real temps. Heats index values will reach into the 110s. We won’t get much of a break overnight with lows across Mississippi in the upper-70s and near 80.
Rain chances are nearly zero for most of us. The extreme temps could spark off a shower, but anything that develops will be short-lived and very isolated.
Tropical Storm Harold formed just in time to make landfall in southern Texas, bringing some much-needed rain to the western Gulf of Mexico region. In the meantime, Tropical Storm Franklin is working its way closer to the Gulf with two more systems in the Atlantic Ocean. None are a threat to our region yet, but we’ll keep watching.
