Summer steam is not letting up today, but some relief is possible for the weekend... Once again, temperatures soar into the middle 90s along with a few widely spaced showers and storms.
Tropical Depression 9 has strengthened to become Tropical Storm Hermine.
As of 1pm, sustained winds are 40 mph; due to warm water in the Gulf, some additional strengthening is possible before reaching NW Florida late Thursday. A Tropical Storm warning continues from near Panama City to Tampa. We are not expecting any significant impacts for Mississippi.
We do have a treat for the weekend as slightly cooler and noticeably drier air blows in from the north; the big difference will be the lower humidity and pleasant breeze!
