Published 1:30 am Monday, March 27, 2023

One could wonder if Mississippi is stuck on Groundhog’s Day as the Storm Prediction Center has added yet another day of severe weather potential. Fortunately, this risk is a Level 1 for a small section of the state.

The National Weather Service has included the Level 1 risk for an area from Brookhaven to Laurel towards Hattiesburg and southwards for late this afternoon into the overnight hours.

According to the information provided by the NWS, isolated severe storms are possible with damaging wind gusts and hail, although a tornado can’t be ruled out.
