04/18 Ryan’s “Enhanced Severe” Thursday Forecast

Today’s enchanced severe threat continues, but has so far brought little to South MS. At the time of this writing, we’ve only seen one Tornado Warning in Jackson County and a few Severe Thunderstorm Warnings in Stone and George Counties.

Unfortunately, that was just round one of at least two.

Round two is just now moving into the extreme northwestern corner of Pearl River County, so we are by no means out of the woods yet. I expect the severe threat to remain significant until at least 10 PM, but could last slightly longer if the front slows.

Instability, low level moisture, and wind shear remain high enough to produce tornadoes as the “squall lines” move through.

Continue to remain “weather aware” and keep your WXXV 25 Weather App handy for up to the minute updates. Once this begins to clear we’ll see nothing but sunshine through the weekend and to start next week!
