** Remeber during Severe Weather stay tuned to your Local Weather Authority
Friday, January 18, 2019
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.
