Mississippi Skies: Big mess of a storm system moving out after a few more strong storms today

Published 1:30 am Friday, March 3, 2023

The powerful cold front that has been causing havoc across the southeastern United States is finally marching through Mississippi today, leaving behind much more comfortable and seasonable temperatures. Before we get to a beautiful weekend, some of us will still have a few more storms, a few of which could be strong to severe.

Although the chance for tornadoes, hail, and flooding aren’t as strong today, there could be a few problem storms across the state. The bad weather will finally move out later today, and a few of us may see some sunshine! Be cautious with some strong winds today as the front moves through. Maybe the rain will knock down some of that pollen before the wind moves through. We could have gusts up to 40 miles per hour.
