Mississippi Skies: Our next severe weather forecast has changed. Where are storms possible?

Published 12:11 am Sunday, February 25, 2024

We’ll have what some call “Chamber of Commerce” weather across the state Sunday with plenty of sunshine and pleasant temperatures. Parts of Mississippi will have some gusty winds throughout the day.

As we mentioned last week, the Storm Prediction Center is monitoring the risk for some strong storms, hail, and maybe even a tornado or two midweek. Models are still showing this possibility Wednesday, but the coverage area has moved quite a bit.

The forecast could certainly change again over the next day or two, but for now the risk covers northern Mississippi and stretches north. Rain chances drop considerably the farther south in the state one lives.
