...New AVIATION...

(This evening through next Tuesday)
Issued at 325 PM CDT Wed Sep 28 2022

All attention today was on Hurricane Ian making landfall this
afternoon in southwest Florida as a category 4 Hurricane. Closer
to home we have had great weather. Clear, breezy, and comfortable
temperatures across the Mid South has been the rule and expect
that to continue again for Thursday. A Red Flag Warning remains in
effect for through this evening, and fire danger will remain
elevated for Thursday. We will have to see if a Red Flag Warning
will be needed for portions of northeast Mississippi for Thursday.
Dry weather and below normal temperatures will continue Friday as
the surface high moves into the northeast U.S. With the remnants
of Ian expected to remain well east of the region, there should be
little change to the weather for the weekend and into Monday and
Tuesday. Dry weather will continue during this period with
temperatures remaining a couple of degrees below normal.
