Mississippi Skies: Heavy rainfall on the way for beginning of long weekend

Published 1:30 am Friday, April 7, 2023

It’s looking like the soggy long weekend continues today with the best chances for heavy rain and thunderstorms being in the swatch across the middle part of the state.

Parts of Mississippi could have two or three inches of rain by the time the rain moves out Sunday. Right now, we’re not expecting severe storms, but a few of the thunderstorms could be on the stronger side. The main concern right now is the potential for heavy rain on Magnolia State highways as people travel for Easter weekend.

Currently, it’s looking like at least the northern half of Mississippi could have some nicer weather for Sunday.
