Mississippi Skies: Next severe threat being monitored

Published 1:30 am Saturday, February 11, 2023

We had something unique happen Friday evening and it’s not necessarily a good thing. The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Level 2 severe risk for a system that’s five days away. When that happens, models are already showing potential for severe weather for a strong front without too many drawbacks. Of course, things could change before then. Threat areas could move or the system could weaken; however, when models agree this early, sometimes it could create a severe weather outbreak. We’ll know more in a couple of days but it’s a good idea to start thinking about plans you have Thursday in case the weather gets a little rougher than normal.

In the meantime, most of our state will have at least a slight chance of rain today. It’s going to be a cold, damp day for most of us.
