Not the summer of 69
The temperature has not reached 69 degrees the entire summer! Another record could be broken soon. More on that below.
Today, expect a better chance for a pop-up thunderstorm, but still partly sunny overall. Highs in the lower 90s. Overnight, mostly clear with lows in the low 70s.
The weak front yesterday brought the humidity down a touch, but not enough to make a huge difference. Another weak front comes through Saturday, but it won't be dramatic either. With regard to that fresh fall breeze, these aren't the fronts we're looking for. Shower chances increase a bit today into the weekend, but coverage remains low overall. The best chance of rain will be on Sunday.
Temperatures won't dip much into next week. In fact, we haven't even dipped into the 60s since June 9th. That's the entire summer! If this continues into next week, we will beat the record for most consecutive days at 70 degrees or above...ugh. As of this morning, we this year is in second place. Overall, expect low 90s and low 70s, with perhaps southwest Mississippi squeaking into the upper 60s one night in southwest Mississippi.
The peak of hurricane season in Saturday, but thankfully activity has remained low in recent days. There are only two areas keeping our interest, but they are in the Atlantic and not a threat to the Gulf of Mexico at this time.
