Strong to severe storms are possible across South Mississippi late Monday afternoon into Monday evening ahead of a cold front.
A squall line is expected to form by the middle of the afternoon over central Mississippi and stretching through Louisiana. By the late afternoon hours, rain will begin moving into the western part of our viewing area. The line of storms will spread east through the late evening hours, with rain tapering off after 9:00 or 10:00 p.m.
The main threat in any strong or severe storms that form will be damaging wind gusts, although a brief isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. The hail threat and flood threat are extremely low.
A few showers may linger behind into the early morning hours, but skies should clear quickly after sunrise Tuesday. Cooler air and breezy conditions will be in place after the cold front passes, and high temperatures will be in the mid 70s. Low temperatures Tuesday night into Wednesday morning will drop into the upper 40s.
