Mississippi Skies: Watching the next severe threat

Published 1:30 am Wednesday, April 26, 2023

Today begins a stretch of several days of rain and thunderstorm chances, and the Storm Prediction Center is now watching the potential for some severe weather.

A Level 1 has been placed over much of Mississippi for Thursday and Thursday night. Right now, the main risks are hail and damaging winds.

We’ll actually see some sunshine in parts of the state today, but rain is on the way. Any part of the state could have a shower or thunderstorm tonight and tonight. Most of us will also have some pretty brisk wind gusts.
