HATTIESBURG, Miss.–The threat for severe weather for Saturday night going into Sunday morning is mainly from straight-line winds, but tornadoes are also a possibility, said the National Weather Service Friday morning. A strong twister or two could not be ruled out.
“The bulk of our severe weather is gonna be mainly after midnight,” said Meteorologist Chis Bannan. “Portions of southwest Mississippi could see some storms in the evening hours.”
He said all modes of severe weather are possible, which means hail, wind, dangerous lightening and tornadoes.
“There are possibilities we could get one or two strong tornadoes out there.”
He said if any tornadoes do happen, they will likely be the isolated, spin-up kind.
The biggest threat for severe weather in the state is in the southern half, but the Storm Prediction Center does have most of the state in at least a slight risk category.
