Mississippi Skies: Severe storms possible Sunday, Monday in parts of the state
Published 10:02 pm Saturday, July 1, 2023
We’re beginning to have better chances for rain and storms across the state, but with that chance comes a severe weather risk from the Storm Prediction Center.
A Level 1 has been issued for parts of the state Sunday that include the Delta region and parts of north Mississippi. A Level 1 has been issued for Monday for the Delta, north Mississippi, and eastern Mississippi north of Meridian. The main risks for both days are strong winds and hail. Even though the risk area doesn’t include other parts of the state, everyone could still see storms on the stronger side.
Rain chances for still on the low side for most of us during the day Sunday, but get better Sunday night, Monday, and Independence Day. Anyone with plans to attend events Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday nights should check individual event social media pages to be sure plans haven’t been adapted if storms do fire up.
Our temperatures are going to be a few degrees lower this week, but humidity levels will still be oppressive. More widespread rain chances will help give us a little break at times.
