The heat continues but some relief is on the way... Highs reach the middle 90s again this afternoon. A few spotty showers develop, but the chance for rain at any given location is low.
Tropical Depression 9 is in the Gulf of Mexico and still has the potential to become a tropical storm. For Mississippi, we are not expecting any issues; the system will turn northeast reaching Florida between Tallahassee and Tampa Thursday afternoon or evening, then will quickly move into the Atlantic. By Friday morning, Florida will be in the clear. Around here, turning slightly cooler and less humid over the Labor Day weekend.
