JACKSON, Miss.-- After a couple of nice days to start off the work-week in Mississippi, severe weather is expected in the state this afternoon.
The greatest chance for severe weather is with the northern half of Mississippi.
Meteorologist Dan Byrd says, "Some of the storms will be severe possibly producting tornadoes."
It is expected to be a fast-moving front the is moving through the state. That means there won't necessarily be a lot of rain associated with this storm, but some places could get up to an inch.
Byrd tells us what might spawn those tornadoes tonight.
"It should be a broken line of severe storms that will develop along and out ahead of the cold front," adds Byrd.
The more north and west you live in Mississippi, the greater chance for this severe weather you will have tonight.
These storms are expected to pop-up over Arkansas in the afternoon and start to move northeast.
And with these storms, expect high winds.
Byrd says, "We could see some gusts up to 30-40mph in the delta this afternoon, a little lighter as you get to central Mississippi."
The greatest threat for people in the delta is from 7-11 p.m. according to Byrd and in central Mississippi from 9 p.m.- 1 a.m.
