South MS was removed from the “marginal” risk today, but potentially severe weather is still on its way! Scattered showers will become thunderstorms and more frequent as we head through the night and into tomorrow. Saturday still carries an “enhanced” risk, so be sure to be “weather aware” as the front moves through.
It has slowed some from model runs earlier in the week, so the most likely time for the worst weather is now from 9 AM – 3 PM.
During this time expect heavy rains, frequent lightning, winds in excess of 60 mph, large hail, and tornadoes. Only the rain and lightning are guaranteed, but the setup is indicative of much more. If you haven’t already, now would be a good time to download our free Weather Authority app. You can use the live, interactive radar to watch the storms in real time, as well as get instant updates on new watches/warnings. Don’t expect much of a break either, only Sunday will be clear as more showers move in early next week.
