The National Weather Service is keeping a close eye on a system that looks to bring “enhanced” chances of severe weather to Mississippi this afternoon/evening. Specifically, north Mississippi is under the greatest threat. “Enhanced” chances indicate numerous severe storms are possible, marked by larger-than-average size hail, damaging winds, and an increased chance for tornadoes.
Further south, the “slight” chance for severe weather isn’t much better: scattered severe storms are possible, with a chance for hail and damaging winds.
Not everyone will get rain, nor will everyone get a storm, but if you’re above the Hwy 84 corridor, stay weather aware today.
