Mississippi Skies: Widespread storms, possible severe weather could dampen celebrations
Published 9:44 pm Monday, July 3, 2023
Tuesday may be a good day to catch up on the movie watchlist or inside chores as rainy, stormy weather returns to the state. The morning will be sunny to partly cloudy for most of us, but storms in the afternoon will be threatening to put a damper on Independence Day festivities. Rain chances are higher than the normal summertime threat we’ve had the past few days, but some places will clear out early enough in the evening for a few events. Just be sure to be prepared for a shower and check event updates if you’re traveling too far!
A Level 1 severe risk covers most of the state for Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons. The main threats will be heavy rainfall, strong winds, and hail.
