The attack of a woman inside a public bathroom earlier this week has people across South Mississippi talking about ways to protect themselves. For some, that may mean carrying a firearm or pepper spray. Even with those tools, it’s still a good idea to know how to defend yourself if necessary. Martial arts like jiu-jitsu can be useful in those situations.
Despite the cool morning, we’ll warm up near 90 this afternoon. It’s going to be a beautiful day with plenty of sunshine. However, the humidity will increase by the end of the day. We won’t be as cool tonight. Temperatures will drop into the low 70s by Sunday morning. We're also closely watching Tropical Storm Ian in the Caribbean. It could move into the Gulf next week and impact Florida.
