Expect partly cloudy skies today and hardly any rain with afternoon highs in the 80s. Unfortunately, tropical storm or hurricane watches or warnings will probably be issued today or tonight for parts of the U.S. Gulf Coast, perhaps including Mississippi. This is in anticipation of Zeta which is expected to make a landfall around Wednesday night in either Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or Florida. For now, it’s still too early to tell exactly which state will receive a direct hit. But once those tropical alerts are issued then that should make any possible impacts easier to figure out. If the storm follows the center of the current forecast track, then South Mississippi would see periods of rainy weather between Tuesday night & Thursday morning with a chance for 39mph+ wind arriving Wednesday. If the storm instead follows the left or right edge of the current forecast track, then we could see lesser impacts. We’ll be watching in the coming days for any possible track shifting or narrowing which could change our possible impacts. Improving weather conditions are expected by Thursday afternoon as a cold front arrives from the west. And we should stay dry and cooler for Friday into the weekend.
