A line of heavy showers is pushing through eastern Mississippi at this hour. It is approaching the Columbus MS area. It will move into Franklin, Marion, Lamar and Pickens Counties. It should arrive in those counties between midnight and 12:30 a.m.

The showers are low topped, with little if any lightning. In fact, the Birmingham radar can barely see them. Tops per the Columbus MS radar are only 20,000 feet max. Winds did gust to 41 mph with this feature as it passed Greenwood MS a few hours ago.
