Sunday 9/30 Forecast Discussion

A new Tornado Watch has just been issued for much of the viewing area until 2:00 AM. We have had several tornado warning for Southeastern Louisiana and South Mississippi. Heavy damage was reported in Stone County about 4:30 this afternoon from a possible tornado. The driving factor behind these tornadoes is a surface low to our West that is slowly tracking East. It is strengthening as it moves towards us, and the threat for isolated, brief tornadoes looks like it will continue for at least the next few hours. This low pressure system is also bringing a heavy, soaking rain to much of the area. Key Field in Meridian saw over 1 inch of rain today, and many places saw much more than that. The rain will continue on and off tomorrow, before we finally clear out Tuesday. The rest of the week looks nice, with mainly sunny skies, and seasonable temperatures. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s, and lows will be in the upper 50's. We'll be here watching the storms tonight.
