Beware Afternoon Storms: Some Can Pack Quite a Punch

FLORA, Miss.–If you were one of the several hundred people who saw flooding from afternoon storms Tuesday, then you know those kinds of storms can pack quite a punch. You can expect more storms today and for the rest of the week.

One of the big dangers from the afternoon pop-up storms that we get in Mississippi is ground to cloud lightening. If you hear thunder, the rule is it’s close enough to get you. So, go inside.

“Wind gusts of 40 to 60 mph, heavy rain and frequent lightening,” said National Weather Service Meteorologist Jared Allen, describing storms you might can expect this afternoon.

Most of the state has a 50 percent chance of seeing a storm. North the chance is a little less.
