Windy-rainy weather expected !
As of this writing, tropical depression number 5 is located in the southeast gulf and is moving northwest. The system is forecast to become a tropical storm before making landfall on the Mississippi coast early Friday morning. What this means for our area is increasing winds and rain for Thursday on into Friday. At this point winds are forecast to be in the 20-30 mph range on Thursday and increasing Thursday night and by Friday we may have 45 mph winds along with periods of heavy rain. The storm is not expected to reach hurricane strength at this time but will have to be monitored closely. We will continue to update our blog throughout the day. Rex
