Heat records set in Pine Belt Monday

Hattiesburg set a new record high on Monday when the mercury soared to 103 degrees breaking the old record for the date of 98 set back in 1998. The record high for today is 99 set back in 1999 and the forecast calls for 101 so another record may be set today. There will eventually be some relief from the heat as we get into Thursday on into Saturday as the temps or forecasted to reach only the mid 90s. Lows will continue to be in the 70s each night. Tropical Storm Colin is out in the open Atlantic and models indicate that it should not be a threat to the gulf at this time. Rex
