Rushing Jewelers in Picayune closing after 50 years in business
Too many pools and beaches but not enough lifeguards has become a national issue, but it’s one an Ocean Springs woman is working to change. The humidity is a little higher. We are going to see higher dew point temperatures which will keep our overnight lows a little milder in the 70s. Wednesday will be partly to mostly cloudy, hot and humid in the afternoon with high temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s. Thursday, our rain chances increase as a disorganized area of low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico moves closer to the northern gulf. At this time, the low looks like it will bring rainy conditions to the panhandle of Florida through the day on Thursday. Models take the system east across the Florida peninsula through the weekend and into the Atlantic by early next week. Our rain chances decrease on Friday, as the low is anticipated to move away from South Mississippi. We will keep an eye on it and keep you posted.
