WEDNESDAY: With a warm front draped over the area – rain will continue to be a factor, especially early in the day. Scattered downpours will be possible through the day with temperatures running in the 70s and 80; feels like temps could deeper in the 80s. Rain chances increase again, along with the breezes as the front approaches from the west and Zeta nears from the south. Lows will drop into the 50s and 60s.
TRACKING ZETA: Zeta has regrouped itself in the Gulf ahead of making a landfall in southeast Louisiana by the latter part of the day, possibly as a category 2 hurricane. The approaching upper trough will help to shift Zeta farther to east – taking its core impacts along with it through south Mississippi and into Alabama through Wednesday evening into early Thursday. Locally, a few tropical rain bands could affect Pike, Walthall, Lawrence, Jeff Davis, Covington and Smith counties featuring tropical storm force gusts and periods of heavy rain this evening. The strong front will push everything quickly east and out of the region by sunrise Thursday.
