JACKSON, Miss.–Some parts of north Mississippi and the Golden Triangle were getting rain and storms Wednesday morning, with flash flood warnings in effect. That rain was expected to push south and stick around through Thursday for central and south Mississippi.
You’ll definitely want to keep an umbrella handy.
“It’s a weak cold front that’s gonna drop south into the area today and tonight,” said National Weather Service Meteorologist Dan Byrd. “It really isn’t gonna go anywhere real fast.”
He said tomorrow’s chances will be about 50 percent.
As far as strong storms or severe weather goes, it could happen, but not likely.
“Could see a strong storm at most this afternoon with wind gusts at 30 to 40 mph, and some small hail could be possible and maybe some localized flash flooding, but we’re not really looking at any widespread heavy rainfall with this system.”
