Daily Briefing: Rain showers will not dampen Veterans Day events

Hopefully the rain will hold off until today’s Veterans Day program at Stanton Hall is over. Notable World War II veterans from Natchez will be featured in the program which starts at 1:30 p.m. in the Queen’s Room. A small donation for $20 is requested. Dr. Jim Coy will be presenting the program.

A 40 percent chance of rain is in the forecast, mainly after 11 a.m. Rain chances will rise as a cold front approaches the area. Chance of rain increases to 90 percent after 9 p.m. Behind the cold front will be frigid temperatures and high winds that will make it very cold from Tuesday through Thursday evening.

 

 

Veteran’s Day special section
