WEDNESDAY: Expect mostly sunny skies to prevail once again as temperatures continue to warm from the morning 60s in the middle to, a few, upper 80s by afternoon. Feels like temperatures will run closer to 90°. A carbon copy of the past few nights – clear to partly clear skies amid patchy fog with lows in the 60s.
THURSDAY: More patches of fog will be possible to kick off your Thursday across the region – expect a mix of sun and clouds as winds turn out of the southeast. Highs will top out in the middle 80s again – though, a stray shower can’t be ruled out late in the day in southwest Mississippi.
EXTENDED FORECAST: A weak front will sweep through by Friday – offering a better chance for scattered storms and a slight cool down into the weekend – taking highs back to the upper 70s and lower 80s. Another front is poised to move into the region at some point next week – that could bring a risk for a few stronger storms. We’ll keep an eye out on that potential.
TROPICS: Hurricane Epsilon has begun its move northwest – closing near Bermuda by the end of the week. Tropical storm conditions turn likely along the island nation by Thursday – though the core of the storm stays to the east. Rip current and surf issues could be felt farther away – from the Bahamas to the Greater and Lesser Antilles – eventually along the eastern seaboard over the next few days.
