Mississippi Skies: Plenty of sun for some; severe storms possible for others

Published 11:06 pm Monday, July 10, 2023

No matter the type of summertime weather one likes, they could find it in Mississippi Tuesday. If one wants sunshine and heat, northern and central Mississippi will be sunny and beautiful after some fog burns off in the morning. If one likes rain and storms, southern Mississippi and the Gulf Coast is the place to be Tuesday afternoon.

There is a Level 1 risk for severe weather stretching from Vicksburg to Magee to Laurel. The risk zone includes Natchez, Brookhaven, Columbia, McComb, and Hattiesburg. The main risk is from noon until 8 p.m. and includes a few isolated severe storms and hail.

We’re watching a system in the Atlantic for possible development later in the week. Even if it does form, it doesn’t pose any threat to the Gulf Coast.
