Dozens of people are in custody on drug related charges tonight after sweeps on the Mississippi Gulf Coast by state and federal officers.

Severe thunderstorms for some parts of the state today, still dry in most of Central Mississippi but a change is on the way! Meteorologist Eric Law says the chance for rain and thunderstorms goes up for our area beginning tomorrow!
