JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Friday morning, Paul Williams told viewers it would be beautiful, summerlike Mississippi day. That was his last forecast for WLBT. Paul is leaving to become the Chief Meteorologist at the ABC affiliate in Memphis.

Paul had two stints at WLBT, beginning in 1990. He left in 1993 for St. Louis and made a stop in Hartford, Connecticut, before returning to WLBT in 1999.

He celebrated 14 years on the WLBT morning show earlier this year, working with many difference people on the broadcast, including News Director Wilson Stribling, Barbie Bassett (then a news anchor), Jack Hobbs, Melissa Pace, Dawn Russell, and Wendy Suares.

Paul also began delivering the weather on the WLBT Noon Report after Woodie Assaf's retirement in 2001.

We wish Paul the best, and will all miss him.
