4th of July Weather: Dangerous heat and some rain potential

Mary Apel

Isolated to scattered showers and storms are likely this afternoon with the better chances in the southeast. Dangerously hot and humid conditions are likely again today with highs in the mid and upper 90s.

Isolated showers will linger into early this evening before skies become partly cloudy overnight. Lows will remain warm, falling only into the mid to upper 70s.

Significant heat stress conditions will continue today across much of the area, with peak heat index values of 110 to 120 degrees expected particularly along and northwest of the Natchez Trace. Elsewhere, peak heat index values will be closer to 105 to 110 degrees. Remember to stay hydrated and take frequent breaks when outdoors, including any Holiday festivities! Heat exhaustion and heat stroke will be likely with prolonged outdoor activity!
