SUNDAY NIGHT: Rain and thunderstorms likely. Some thunderstorms could be strong to severe, with the greatest threat of severe storms in the Delta where there is a Level 3 “Enhanced” threat of severe weather. The rest of Central Mississippi is under a Level 2 “Slight” threat, and the Pine Belt is under a Level 1 “Marginal” threat. Damaging winds and flash flooding are the main threats, but a tornado can’t be ruled out, especially in our Delta counties. Lows will be mild, in the mid 60s. Chance of rain 80 percent.
MONDAY and TUESDAY: The line of strong storms should exit our region by Monday morning, but unsettled weather will continue. Skies will be mostly cloudy an dpop-up thunderstorms are likely Monday afternoon and into Tuesday as well. We’ll be weather aware because on both days, there is a Level 1 “Marginal” threat of severe thunderstorms where again the main threat is damaging winds and flooding rainfall, but a tornado will again be possible. Chance of rain 60 to 80 percent.
WEDNESDAY: Chances of rain and thunderstorms will continue on Wednesday. Total rainfall from Sunday through late Wednesday could exceed 4 inches in some locations. It’ll be cool, with highs around 70°F.
LATE WEEK: By Thursday afternoon we should see a return of sunshine along with comfortable temperatures that will last into next weekend!
