Mississippi Skies: Severe thunderstorms return Friday night, Saturday

Published 1:30 am Friday, May 19, 2023

We’ll begin our Friday with some nice weather for most of the state. Most of us will have sunny skies and some pleasant breezes.

We’ll have our normal thunderstorms chances in the afternoon, but instead of dying down in the evening as the past several days, we’ll have the chance for some severe weather for central, southern, and Gulf Coast communities as a weak cold front approaches. The Delta will have the risk tonight while other regions will be more Saturday morning and during the day.

The main risk is for isolated severe storms, hail, and damaging winds.
