We began the day with a line of non-severe showers. Once they moved out of the viewing area, we were put in a dry slot and did not see any shower activity between 1-6. It was during that time that enough energy was created in the atmosphere to fuel the storms that developed along the cold front this evening. A few small severe cells developed in central MS and pushed through Monroe county MS & Lamar county AL. There’s no doubt in my mind that a few of us saw wind damage from these storms.
As for this evening, we’ll continue to watch things for at least the next few hours. It’s still possible that a few storms could carry damaging winds and hail, but the tornado threat is still extremely low. Once this cold front exits to our east this evening, storms will diminish and clouds will decrease. Lows tonight will be in the middle 50s.
Your Monday will be sunny and nice. Highs will only reach the middle 70s.
Same story Tuesday.
Wednesday evening into Thursday will be our next best chance at seeing shower activity. Right now we may see a few strong storms, but we’ll have to keep you updated as we progress into the middle of the week.
