.UPDATE...
A 995mb low over Texas Panhandle has created a pretty tight

Mississippi this morning. Latest vad wind profile off our radar
revealed 25 knots at 1000 feet and 35 knots at 2000 feet. With
temperatures climbing into the lower to mid 80s through this
afternoon, these winds will mostly mixed down with 20 to 25 knots
over near shore waters and tidal lakes and 15 to 25 knots or 20
to 30 mph with gusts up 35 mph over Southeast Louisiana next to
