Mississippi Skies: A few rain chances as fall finally arrives!

Published 11:18 pm Thursday, October 5, 2023

We’ll still have some humidity and end-of-summer temps for some of us Friday morning, but some big changes sweep the state as the day continues! Most of us will reach a high temp in the morning and lunchtime Friday before temps drop throughout the afternoon!

The skies will become sunny, and we’ll have some gusty breezes. Although Friday will be a gorgeous autumn day teasing a gorgeous, cool weekend, we do have some serious concerns about wildfires. As people are tempted to build bonfires and work outdoors, remember many of us are under burn bans.
