HATTIESBURG, Miss.–The risk of severe weather, including tornadoes, is in the forecast especially for Tuesday, but a few severe storms could pop up today as a system approaches Mississippi. Even today, the possibility of tornadoes is present.
“We, later today and tonight, can’t discount a stray severe storm,” said National Weather Service Meteorologist Brad Bryant. “Today and tonight, if there are going to be any severe storms, probably the main risk is hail.”
Bryant said the risk for a tornado or two today and tonight, though, “isn’t zero”.
“Tomorrow the tornado risk increases a bit, especially across southeastern Mississippi and the Pine Belt.”
THE WHOLE INTERVIEW
There were near 100 percent chances of rain for most of Mississippi for Monday night through Tuesday night.
Bryant said the rain may take until Tuesday night or Wednesday morning to clear out, but Christmas Day promises to be sunny, with a high in the low 50s.
