Stormy Weather

For the Mississippi readers, we've really taken a soaking over the last couple of days and more rain is expected today. In looking at the latest numbers, Jackson has recorded 31.20" of rain since January 1. Normal for this time of the year is 36.68" which means we are -5.48" below normal. Here is a glimpse of the rainfall totals from yesterday:

Gulfport 1.82"

Greenville 0.13"

Hattiesburg 1.07"

Jackson 1.16"

McComb 1.87"

Vicksburg 1.45"


Today we have a strong area of low pressure that will ride along a warm front and bring more rain. The possibility exists for some portions of the WLBT viewing area to see some severe storms as well as a chance for isolated tornadoes. I have attached the National Weather Service's graphicast so you can pinpoint your location.


Please have your weather radio on throughout the day and evening, and lets hope for the best.

Let me go ahead and apologize to all of you who may tune in tonight. I've been on antibiotics for the last 3 days fighting a horrible sinus infection. Lilly Faith and Will had the stomach virus yesterday and Gracie woke up with it this morning at 4am. Now I have 3 children with the stomach virus. Not to mention, the Olympics went past the expected time last night, so our nightly news didn't go on until just before midnight. So if my brain seems alittle fuzzy, you know the reason why!

I liked how you kept correcting yourself last night... "Look for heavy rain showers tomorrow... well, later today!"

I hope y'all feel better soon, and I hope I miss whatever is going around! I already had it once this summer!

Bless your heart! I had the stomach virus yesterday and I am praying that my kids don't get it. Hope you get some rest soon.

I am sure you will do fine. I pray that God gives you an extra measure of grace and strength today and that all your babies are well soon!
