Heat records may be broken today-Colin about to be born ?
The record high for today in Hattiesburg is 98 degrees set back in 1998. The National Weather Service is forecasting 101 for today, so, we may see a new record high for this date set ! The heat will linger into tomorrow when 100 is forecast. We will gradually see our highs back down to the mid 90s by the end of the week with increased chances for afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Lows will continue to be in the 70s each night. Now on to the tropics. A strong tropical wave in the central Atlantic is continuing to become better organized and a tropical depression is likely to form at anytime. Models indicate the system will eventually become a named storm and the name will be "Colin". It is far too soon to predict where "Colin" may end up so stay tuned and we will keep you informed. Stay cool !!!! Rex
