Tornadoes are no stranger to Mississippi and west Alabama. And because we've had so many, some refer to this region of the country as Dixie Alley. We took this question to Meteorology Professor Dr. GRADY Dixon at Mississippi State University, who clears the air.
Saturday: Look forward to lots of sunshine and high temperatures in the low to mid 80s. Conditions will be great for tailgating before the big Ole Miss / Alabama game in Tuscaloosa or for any other outdoor activity your may have planned.
