Mississippi Skies: Severe storms now possible this weekend

Published 1:30 am Friday, March 10, 2023

The Storm Prediction Center is now saying some severe weather is possible across the Magnolia State this weekend. Today’s weather should clear out early, but a strong system heading our way is what’s causing some concern for forecasters.

North Mississippi is under a Level 1 risk for severe weather Saturday while the rest of Mississippi is under a Level 2 risk Sunday. Although specifics haven’t been released yet, a Level 2 risk often includes the potential for heavy rain, hail, strong winds, and a few tornadoes. We’ll know more later today or Saturday morning.

In the meantime, this afternoon and tonight should be great weather!
