Mississippi Skies: Mix of sun and clouds today; severe threat still in forecast

Published 1:30 am Friday, April 14, 2023

We finally get a break from rain today! There will be a few remaining clouds in northern Mississippi, but skies should clear and give the entire state mostly sunny skies. It’s going to warm into the mid to upper 70s across the state with a nice breeze across the state.

Unfortunately, the pleasant weather doesn’t last long. An approaching cold front will bring more rain and thunderstorms to the Magnolia State Saturday. The Storm Prediction Center has maintained a Level 2 risk for Vicksburg, Greenwood, Greenville, Cleveland, and the western Delta. A Level 1 risk covers stretches from Natchez to Philadelphia to Columbus and includes Brookhaven, Jackson, Magee, Yazoo City, and Eupora.

The Level 2 risk includes a potential for severe thunderstorms, damaging winds up to 60 miles per hour, hail, heavy rain, and a tornado or two. The Level 1 risk includes the same threats to a lesser degree.
