Temperatures will drop into the lower 30s across the river parishes and areas northward. Areas along/north of the interstate corridor have already experienced two freezes this season and thus vegetation has mostly gone dormant for the season. In the warmer river counties and southward, freeze warnings are issued for every freeze.
According to Harrison County Emergency Management, a very deep surface low is expected to sweep across the north half of Louisiana and central Mississippi Thursday into Friday. Moisture is expected to be in play across the outlook area Thursday afternoon and Thursday evening. As a result, severe weather chances are low but can not be ruled out across the outlook area on Thursday.
