Northeast Louisiana, and Central Mississippi
National Weather Service Jackson MS
334 PM CST Sat Feb 17 2018

.DISCUSSION...Rain showers will be possible across the forecast
area through the weekend. Wind direction will vary through the
weekend as a frontal boundary lingers across the region. Some
patchy fog cannot be ruled out the next few nights and early
mornings due to increased humidity levels and the front moving
through the region.
