Today: Wednesday will likely be hot again with highs in the mid-90s. A sunny start will lead to partly cloudy skies in the afternoon, however isolated storms may occur, especially for areas in or close to Mississippi, in the evening. 

Thursday-Friday: The end of the work week will be very wet with numerous to widespread storms for the northern half of our area, whereas the southern half of our area will see scattered to spotty showers and storms. Some of the storms could have heavy downpours associated with them, which may lead to isolated flooding concerns. A MARGINAL (¼) RISK for flash flooding has been issued for Thursday because of this. Highs will be limited to the mid-upper 80s thanks to the rain and increased cloud cover. 

Saturday-Sunday: This weekend will continue scattered rain chances in the afternoons with highs near 90 degrees. 

Next Week: The same pattern this weekend will continue next week. 

Tracking the Tropics: A new tropical wave has been highlighted for possible development. There is a wave in the Caribbean that is expected to track over Central America and into the Bay of Campeche where it has a 20% chance of developing into a tropical depression or tropical storm in the next 5 days.
