Make sure those Christmas decorations are tied down well because we’re in for some major changes as a storm system approaches. We’ll go from dry, cold weather to stormy, warm weather Thursday night with rain chances lasting several days. We’ll also have windy conditions with gusts up to 30 miles per hour possible across the state.

The Storm Prediction Center has also placed a risk of severe weather over parts of the state.

A Level 1 risk covers southern Mississippi, mostly south of a line from Natchez to Magee to Quitman. Risks include a severe storm or two, damaging winds, and a tornado from 2 a.m. until noon Friday.
