Weekend Plans Better Include The Umbrella

JACKSON, Miss– Clouds and rain in the weekend forecast for the Magnolia state. Some need to prepare for round two of nasty weather. 

In north and central Mississippi, it’s a forecast of light rain rolling in this afternoon and evening. The chance of showers, maybe a thunderstorm or two, sticks around through the weekend.

For south Mississippi, it’s a flood watch through Sunday afternoon.

“We could see two to four inches of rain this weekend,” says Eric Carpenter with the National Weather Service.

The fear in a lot of minds isn’t just the rain, it’s the severe weather.

“There’s a small chance for a tornado or high wind,” says Carpenter, “but for the most part, the weather won’t be too severe. Nothing like we saw Tuesday.”

That could be a relief in the minds of those in Marion and Jones counties, who are still picking up the pieces from Tuesday’s tornadoes that claimed four lives. Governor Phil Bryant declared a state of emergency there. Power wasn’t fully restored to those areas until Christmas Day.

“We don’t expect anything too severe for this weekend,” says Carpenter.
