WIGGINS, Miss.–Parts of Mississippi are under a heat advisory that was expected to last through Saturday. Once again, in Stone, George, Greene, Wayne and Perry counties, you could see heat index values, that’s the way it feels on your skin, at 110 degrees.
“It should return again tomorrow,” said National Weather Service Meteorologist Eric Espenson, with the Mobile office. “108 or better is advisory criteria.”
Espenson said there could be a thunderstorm or two that could bring some relief.
“I actually raised the chances to 30 percent. Some of the storms could be pretty strong because of the heat.”
He said you need to take plenty of breaks if you’re working or exercising outside, drink plenty of water and watch out for children and the elderly.
