Mississippi Skies: Soggy weather begins, but when will the storms arrive?

Published 1:30 am Monday, January 16, 2023

There’s going to be a wide range of weather conditions across the Magnolia State today as a soggy weather pattern begins. Upstate communities will begin the first of several chances of rain this week while southern areas may squeak out one last sunny to partly cloudy day before rain arrives.

We’re still looking at the possibility of some severe weather on Wednesday or Thursday but forecast models haven’t quite aligned on exact timing and for what risks are involved. There is no severe weather expected today or tonight.
