Mississippi Skies: Potential for severe weather increasing
Published 11:23 pm Tuesday, December 5, 2023
The severe weather risk we’ve been watching for the upcoming weekend now expands across most of the state.
Right now, a Level 2 risk covers the Mississippi River communities from the Delta to Vicksburg to Natchez. It also includes Greenwood to Yazoo City to Jackson to McComb to Brookhaven. A Level 1 risk stretches to the Alabama state line and down to the Pine Belt.
It seems all modes of severe weather will be possible, but we don’t know the exact timing and exact risk yet. Models are beginning to agree any severe storms should be Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.
For Wednesday, we’re expecting any clouds to dissipate by afternoon with cool to cold temperatures. We’ll see the coldest temperatures of the week Wednesday night.
Partly sunny, then clearing with a high of 50. Mostly clear overnight with a low of 30.
Sunny with a high of 53. Clear Wednesday night with a low of 30.
Sunny with a high of 56. Breezy with wind gusts up to 20 miles per hour. Clear overnight with a low of 32.
Sunny with a high of 58. Mostly clear overnight with a low of 36.
