The fall like preview that has been a welcoming sight across the deep south, is still maintain it's hold, but things will begin to change. All locations this morning are hovering near 60 degrees making it feel comfortable outside with the makings of a decent day.

Expect one more nice day to close out the week, with highs only forecasted to barely make it into the lower 90s. Through the day expect the winds to gradually shift out of the west, ushering in more heat and humidity. Yes, summer is making another return and the next seven days look to be hot, humid, and brutal.

Beginning tomorrow the heat begins to arrive as well as the increasing humidity that will make it feel like that uncomfortable August that we are all so accustomed to.

Rain will stay out of the forecast for the better part of the weekend before a cold front stalls in northern portions of Mississippi Sunday, which will help provide some lift in our area to kick off a few showers and storms each afternoon. The best chance of any rain looks to come Monday afternoon. Highs for the weekend into next week will be mid 90s with lows in the 70s. Some locations could crack the upper 90s as the upper level ridge builds in over our area, limiting rain chances next week to just isolated afternoon storms.
