Hurricane Delta is making landfall along the southwest Louisiana coast right now, at Creole, LA. The most intense impacts from Delta will be to our west, but our weather has been windier today. It will rainier tonight, and there will be a threat for quick spin-up tornadoes and some coastal flooding. Tonight, the higher rain chances will be as Delta moves from southwest Louisiana into northern Mississippi, and a feeder band sends storms through parts of South Mississippi overnight into Saturday morning. With any of Delta’s squalls, there will be a chance for tornadoes in South Mississippi. The probability of tornadoes in South Mississippi is a 2 out of 5. We expect improving weather conditions during the afternoon hours. The Storm Surge Warning was cancelled; the NWS replaced it with a Coastal Flood Advisory through Saturday morning. Tides will be one to three feet above normal along the Mississippi Coast through Saturday afternoon. High tide will occur between 3:30 AM and 6:00 AM Saturday. There is also a Wind Advisory in effect for all of South Mississippi until 1 PM Saturday. Sunday will be partly cloudy with isolated showers, warm and breezy from time to time.
