COLUMBUS, Mississippi (WCBI) – Late June and early July heat and humidity combo continues to give daily afternoon rain/storm chances.
THURSDAY: Variably cloudy and not as hot today as highs should stay in the upper 80s. Isolated to scattered downpours and a few storms will likely begin forming after 2p. Rain chances will likely persist past sunset and could last as late as midnight for some.
FRIDAY: Isolated, mainly afternoon and early evening showers and storms remain possible. Highs will be in the upper 80s with heat indices in the mid to possibly upper 90s.
