TODAY: Well, today is the day. Millions across the country are gearing up for the eclipse, and viewing across north Mississippi and west Alabama looks pretty good all in all.

It looks like a hot and humid day across the area. Temperatures in the low to mid 90s, with heat index values in the upper 90s to low 100s. The temperature will suddenly drop during the eclipse at around 1:30 or so to the upper 80s, with heat index values in the mid 90s. The temperature will rebound and increase immediately after the eclipse. A stray shower or thunderstorm possible today. Chance of rain around 20%.
