The Mid-South will see near record breaking heat Saturday

Temperatures will be back to near 100 degrees this weekend before a cold front brings a chance of storms and relief from the heat.


What you need to know

  • Hot weather continues with highs over 100 likely Saturday
  • Spotty storms possible on Sunday, but don't expect all-day rain
  • Not as hot to start next week with highs near 90

The lack of humidity made Friday feel a little bit more bare able. Saturday will be much hotter and we will be over 100 once again. Rain is returning this Sunday which will push us back to the 80s on Sunday. There is a Code Orange in effect until sunset tonight and a second one has already been issued for tomorrow. Air quality around the South is varying. Tomorrow will be another day where we might break a record. Highs will be near 101°. If that happens, we would break a record that was set in 2012. Looking at temperatures all across the Mid-south, highs will be in the upper 90s to our whopping 101°. The humidity won't be playing a huge part in the feels like temperatures. But, it will still feel very hot outside.
