Mississippi Skies: New work week brings new severe threat

Published 6:20 am Monday, January 2, 2023

Spring weather lovers have had an incredible couple of days. Unfortunately for them, there’s another type of spring-like weather on the way.

The entire state will be under the threat of severe thunderstorms, hail, damaging winds, and even tornadoes beginning this afternoon and lasting through Tuesday afternoon. The good news is this threat comes in at lower levels, so it’s not expected to be as widespread or as strong as rounds of storms recently. The worst weather from this front is expected to be just west of us.
