Mississippi Skies: Severe threat coming into focus

Published 1:30 am Tuesday, February 7, 2023

We hope everyone got a chance to spend some time outdoors Sunday or Monday to enjoy the sunshine and springlike weather because we’re about to have a stretch of clouds, rain, and a chance for some severe storms.

The rain will hold us for most of us today, but we’ll all see clouds moving in. The better chance of some showers is in southern parts of Mississippi today, but showers will be more isolated in nature.

More widespread rain moves in tomorrow with the chance of storms coming later in the day. Right now, there is only a Level 1 risk for severe storms, hail, strong winds, and isolated tornadoes.
