Published 9:33 pm Tuesday, April 16, 2024

Wednesday will bring a chance for some storms for the northern half of the state with a slight chance for a strong to severe storm in northern Mississippi.

According to the Storm Prediction Center, a Level 1 risk covers about a third of the state from the Tennessee state line to just the U. S. Hwy. 82 corridor. Although storms are possible farther south, we’re not expecting severe weather to impact other areas.

Wednesday also begins a stretch of cloudy days with at least a slight chance of a shower or thunderstorm through Sunday for northern, central, and southern Mississippi.
