Mississippi Skies: Will Wednesday storms bring a severe threat?

Published 9:25 pm Tuesday, June 20, 2023

For the first time in several days, we finally have a day without a formal severe weather risk from the Storm Prediction Center. Although we do have the chance for some storms in Mississippi today, we’re shifting from the rare severe outbreak pattern to the normal summertime afternoon storms pattern.

With more sunshine across the Magnolia State, we’ll also be feeling some more humid and steamy air like we usually have in the summer.

We continue watching Tropical Storm Bret, which has strengthened some during its journey in the Atlantic Ocean. It’s still severe days away from becoming a potential threat and some models have it turning north away from the United States mainland. We’ll keep watching until we know for sure it heads out to sea.
