Strong storms moving into South Mississippi


It's been tame so far, but that may not be the case in the next few hours as the potent storm system slowly moves into South Mississippi.  

The storm system puts several counties under a tornado watch until 2 PM.  Those counties include Hancock, Harrison, Pearl River, Forrest, Jones, Lamar, Marion and Walthall. That watch maybe extended.  

Hancock County is also under a coastal flood advisory through Friday with tides expected to run 1 inch-2 inches above normal. A flash flood watch is in effect for Hancock and Pearl River Counties through Thursday because of the heavy rains forecast with this storm system. We are also expecting showers and thunder storms tonight. 

Dense fog is expected ahead of the rain. Use caution on the roadways, and make sure your lights are on. 

The very slow moving storm system is over east Texas and is continuing to pump moisture into Louisiana. As that system moves toward the northeast. We will see heavy rain and some thunderstorms.
