Early morning storms prompted the National Weather Service to issue a brief "Airport Weather Warning" - meaning storms were causing dangerous turbulence for difficulty in take offs and landings. The same line of storms continues to fall to the southeast at 35 mph; with lightning strikes and significant rain falling at .75"-1.5" within a 20 minute period. High of 91 expected with another round of storms expected this afternoon;80% chance of rain, winds west at 10-15mph.
Tonight the storms may stick around until the mid evening hours at worse, but most of the rain is 'expected' to be out of the way by kickoff. This evening is the first of FRIDAY NIGHT football for high schools, and the fields will be soggy from previous showers. It's likely most of the active storms will be gone by the time most of the games start; overnight lows in the lower 70s.
Tomorrow the pattern of spotty showers will continue in central and southern Mississippi. We'll still have a 60% chance of showers and isolated T-storms. Winds will shift from the northwest at 5-10 mph.
