Mississippi Skies: First round of rain ending before severe threat arrives

Published 1:30 am Tuesday, January 17, 2023

Our weather pattern of warm front, sunshine, cold front continues the next few days as the wardrobe confusion won’t be going away anytime soon. Some parts of Mississippi are running 25 to 30 degrees above average for this time of the year; however, as the old saying goes, “if you don’t like Mississippi’s weather, just wait a few hours.”

Areas in northern Mississippi received the bulk of their rainfall overnight, but showers and a few thunderstorms will linger across southern regions into the day today. Once that weather clears out, it will be sunny and warm across the state. The unseasonably warm weather will help create the potential for severe weather for parts of the state on Wednesday and Wednesday night.
