TODAY AND TONIGHT: Limited cloud cover is expected for today which will allow for highs to reach the mid 90s. Later today clouds will filter in from the west along with a few stray showers but most will be dry, only a 10% rain coverage is expected. Clouds will be sticking around tonight and lows will only drop to the mid and upper 60s.
EXTENDED FORECAST: A summer weather pattern continues this week with warm and muggy conditions. Each day we will have a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the lower 90s and heat indices at least in the mid 90s. There will also be daily chances of afternoon rain showers and a few thunderstorms. The coverage of rain will be around 20% – 40% each day. The showers will also be brief. The latest drought monitor report for the state of Mississippi has over 9% of the state now under abnormally dry conditions. We got less than half of our normal monthly rainfall in May in Jackson, and June is also getting off to a dry start.
TROPICS: A remnant low is what’s left of Tropical Storm Arlene, but this storm continues to drop heavy rainfall over the southern portion of the Florida peninsula. Otherwise, no other tropical development is expected in the next 7 days.
