Watch the Weather: Storms Possible Tuesday, Not as Wild as Sunday, Monday

JACKSON, Miss.–Flash flooding, hail, wind and even a tornado slammed Mississippi Sunday and early Monday, but Tuesday’s storms were not expected to be as potent. But, the area may not be able to handle much more rainfall.

“This won’t be anything like what happened in the past couple of days,” said National Weather Service Meteorologist Eric Carpenter. “This will be a lot more isolated as far as strong to severe storms.”

He said you won’t see training of storms, meaning there won’t be one storm after the other over the same places, which is what caused flooding Sunday and Monday.

“Conditions as they are, we can’t handle a lot of heavy rain. Any rainfall at all will slow the process of the drainage and could prolong the flooding even more.”

What you can expect is perhaps some hail because of cold conditions in the atmosphere.

Almost all of Mississippi has an 80 percent chance of rain and storms Tuesday. That was expected to clear out Wednesday, giving you several days of sunny skies and nice temps, but as the air warms, the possibility of more storms becomes greater.

“Early next week we could have another significant storm system. We’ll have to watch that one,” said Carpenter.
