A cold front moving into the state is bringing with it severe weather which expected to continue Saturday. Both central and northern parts of the state are expected to be impacted the most.
Mike Edmonston is Senior Meteorologist for the National Weather Service and said by the middle of the afternoon Saturday, folks in central Mississippi will need to be on high alert.
“The main threat looks to be 60 mile-per-hour winds with quarter size hail,” said Edmonston. Tornadoes are not expected to be an issue.
After making its way through central Mississippi the storm is predicted to move southeast.
“It looks like it will take until the evening before it reaches the I-59 corridor. That area should see, maybe, strong thunderstorms,” said Edmonston.
The storm will be out of the state by Sunday, but low temperatures will remain.
Sunday Temperature Highs and Lows:
Oxford (64 to 46 degrees)
Jackson (64 to 48)
Ocean Springs (72 to 52)
