1:30am Update

We’re getting new information in regarding the potential for some severe weather late Friday into Saturday afternoon.

– Friday evening through the overnight period: A marginal risk for severe weather is in place for western and northwestern portions of the state. Damaging winds, large, hail, and a brief isolated tornado are possible over these areas. This would primarily be a late evening and overnight event.

– Saturday morning into the afternoon: A slight risk for severe weather is in place for primarily central portions of the state especially along and south of the high 82 corridors in north-central MS and north of I-10 in south MS. Damaging winds are the primary threat with this activity, although if we can get any development ahead of the main squall line we could see a tornado or two. A marginal risk exists elsewhere mainly north of the highway 82 corridor and south of I-10. Damaging winds and a brief spin-up tornado can’t be ruled out with this activity. A cold front will slice through the state during the early morning and afternoon hours, western parts of the state should expect a squall line possibly between 6am-10am, while eastern parts see the activity between 10am-2pm.

We will be monitoring the latest forecasts and any we urge you to check back for later updates as things may change.
