Tropical Storm Bill to Make Landfall in Texas, May Increase Rain Chances in Mississippi

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas–Tropical Storm Bill was expected to make landfall in Texas, near the Louisiana border Tuesday, with winds just below hurricane force and a lot of rain. But its effect on Mississippi may be minimal.

“We think it will probably stay as a tropical storm. It could get a little bit stronger before landfall, but it looks unlikely it’ll reach hurricane status,” said John Cangialosi, with the National Hurricane Center.

If you look up today and see sunny skies, don’t be surprised.

“It looks like it n=might bring a little bit of an increased chance of showers and storms to far western and northwestern portions of Mississippi as we go through the next several days,” said Brad Bryant, a forecaster with the National Weather Service.

The bulk of the wind and rain is gonna remain west of us.”

Bryant said the storms predicted path takes it through Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas, eventually curving back east as it gets well north of the Magnolia State.

“I don’t think there’s gonna be any hazardous weather for Mississippi associated with it.”
