It may be hot already, but rising temperatures are going to take us even higher through the rest of the week. Today remained in the upper 80s, but we’ll inch higher into the low 90s each day this week.
I believe we’ll max out at 93 degrees on Sunday, where the moderate humidity will lead to heat indices in the 100-110 degree range.
These aren’t quite to “heat illness” levels, but are getting quite close. This is also occurring as Memorial Day weekend rolls around, so please enjoy the beautiful weather as you celebrate this solemn holiday, but do so responsibly. Remember to stay hydrated and seek shade regularly if you get too hot. Sunscreen would also be prudent, since there won’t be much cloud cover around. Enjoy the sunny weather, South MS!
