Mississippi Skies: More severe storms possible in parts of Mississippi Thursday

Published 10:18 pm Wednesday, June 14, 2023

A few more severe storms are possible in southern Mississippi Thursday, but we’re not expecting things to get anywhere near as rough as Wednesday.

The big story Thursday is the heat! Some places could have a heat index as hot as 103!

As far as any severe weather goes, a Level 1 covers most of south Mississippi except for right along the Mississippi River. Cities included are Jackson, Meridian, Magee, Brookhaven, Laurel, Columbia, and Hattiesburg. Vicksburg is not included but is right on the western edge. The Level 1 includes a risk for severe storms, strong winds, hail, and heavy rainfall Thursday afternoon and early evening.
