Mississippi Skies: Rainy day could dampen dozens of events

Published 1:30 am Saturday, April 29, 2023

Dozens of annual and special events are planned all the way from the Gulf Coast to North Mississippi today, but some of those events could get quite soggy. A few places will stay dry this morning, but rain and storms could threaten every region of the state by the afternoon.

Some of the storms could be strong with heavy rain, but we’re not expecting any widespread severe weather at this time.

Once we get through the wet weather over the next 18 to 24 hours, we’re looking at a stretch of beautiful weather.
