Mississippi Skies: Will we have another pleasant fall day Thursday? Some of us will, but others have some changes

Published 11:36 pm Wednesday, August 30, 2023

Wednesday ended up being a pretty nice day for August across Mississippi. Even though temperatures still rose into the 90s for some parts of the state, humidity levels were much more comfortable. Unfortunately, that’s already changing Thursday.

The north half of Mississippi will have another day with highs in the 80s and lows in the lower 60s. The skies will be sunny and there will be a pleasant breeze. In the southern half, we’ll already have humidity levels increasing to uncomfortable levels. Most of the state will be sunny with a few showers and storms possible on the Gulf Coast.

The tropics are exploding in activity. We still have Tropical Storm Idalia entering the Atlantic after a Florida landfall and Major Hurricane Frankling, but we also have Tropical Despression 11. Besides those, we have two more areas to watch that could form into something more organized in the next few days.
