Areas around north Mississippi will have the best viewing of the total eclipse occurring today. You’re nearest the path and will have a few scattered clouds and a slim chance for an afternoon thundershower to pop up, but don’t expect anything extended. Highs reaching the upper 90s.
Central Mississippi going to be a little warmer as you move outside to observe the celestial phenomenon: highs inching closer to the mid 90s with partly cloudy skies and a very slim chance to see any rain.
South Mississippi also feeling the heat as highs climb past 90. The Pine Belt seeing a few clouds with a 30% chance for rain, but further south near the Coast, rain chances will increase to around 40%.
