Ryan’s “Beautiful Friday” Forecast

Much more stable conditions are leading to a much more beautiful Friday than what we saw yesterday. Some heat driven t-storms are beginning to pop up on the Western edge of South Mississippi, but it doesn’t look like much rain is likely this evening. We’ll see a warm one tonight, low near 77, with a gradually clearing sky. Hot and humid weather continues tomorrow, high near 94, but afternoon showers will keep local areas cool. Those places that don’t see much rain though will likely see “feels like” conditions nearing heat advisory levels, so be sure to take precautions against heat related illnesses by limiting outdoor exposure, drinking plenty of fluids, and using whatever shade available. While tomorrow isn’t expected to be too wet, much of the next week will be dominated by widespread showers and t-storms, thankfully bringing temperatures down but will likely cause areas of localized flooding. Sand and sand bags are available at Orange Grove Community Center on Dedeaux Road , 42nd Ave at the Fire Station, and the intersection of Hewes Avenue and Glover Street. These sites will be open 24 hours for self service, but some city employees will be available from 8 am until 5 pm Saturday and Sunday. We will begin to see sky clearance and drying as we begin to approach next weekend. Until then, make sure to pack an umbrella or raincoat in the car well into next week.
