Hot Memorial Day Weekend Ahead

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - Passing clouds will eventually thin out Friday evening as temperatures fall back into the 80s by sunset and into the 70s overnight. No real threat for rain this evening or overnight tonight.

This weekend, under a mostly sunny sky, temperatures will cruise into the mid to upper 90s across the area. Heat index values will peak at around 105 for some folks. If you are going to be outside doing any work, please take plenty of breaks and drink a lot of water.

Monday temperatures will be slightly cooler with highs in the low 90s. Then on Tuesday high clouds will start to roll into the area with highs in the low 90s.

By Wednesday the clouds will thicken up a bit and we will see a chance for a brief shower or storm. Highs will be around 90 with a 10% chance for rain. Thursday will feature a few extra clouds and a few extra chances for rain. Right now, this doesn’t look to be like any significant rain either. It still looks like under 0.25 inches in total, but it will help to cool temperatures down a bit.

The clouds kick out of here by Friday and we warm things back up into the weekend. Highs will be back into the mid 90s.
