- tournaments he played in, this- season... and will be going on- to- continue his career, on the - links... at division i florida- gulf- coast.- - and taylor... check out this- diving catch, for the w-x-x-v - play- of the day... courtesy of - detroit tigers center-fielder - derek hill... going back on - it... and he makes the catch no- once... but twice.- let's watch that again... hill- ranging back on it... willie- mays- - like catch over the shoulder...- pops out of his glove... and- then- catches it again, with the bare- hand... just insane - concentration, from the 24- - year-old prospect... just - trying to make it to the show,- in 20-20.

That's why i use my freedom unlimited card to buy heavier weights online.

- as ridging builds toward the- area, any - threat of convection at - all will be limited to late - afternoon isolated- thunderstorms. area - most prone to that would be the- mississippi coastal counties.

- - - - considering the northwesterly - upper flow forecast near the- area, - if any mcs development does - affect the local area, its- likely to - be strong, if not severe.

Dont- see enough of a threat to go- much- - - - more than about 25-30 percent - over far eastern sections on- saturday/sunday.- going to trend toward the hotte- side of guidance, especially on- saturday and sunday.

Current- wind forecasts keep a northerly- component to the winds for much- of the area those two days.

Tha- argues against sea or lake- breezes developing if wind- speeds are- - - - close to 10 mph.

This tends to- produce our hottest temperature- locally.

Many sites should get- into the mid 90s tomorrow...and- - - - upper 90s saturday/sunday.

12z- met guidance for gulfport even- kicks out 100 at gulfport - saturday.

Not going quite that- hot...but - not far off.

Dew points may run- a little lower tomorrow than- today, so heat advisory criteri- 108f heat index - may not be- reached in most areas tomorrow,- although it wont miss by much.- will defer that decision to the- mid shift.

Saturday and sunday- is- quite a bit more definitive.- only question there is whether- an- - - - advisory will cover it, or- whether excessive heat watches- or- warnings- 113f or higher heat index - will be needed.

Best- potential for those would be- north of lake pontchartrain and- would - likely be issued during the - daytime hours tomorrow for- saturday- and sunday.

Current numbers hav- heat index values near 115 on - - - - as the far-reaching effects of- covid-19 continue to- spread, one local non-profit is- - - - doing what it always has -- standing in the gap between - south mississippi residents and- loss.
