Severe Weather Possible Today.

TODAY: A complex and volatile setup across northeast Mississippi and west Alabama will unfold today. This morning, a few scattered showers will be possible, but no thunderstorms are expected. As we head through mid morning,  Showers and storms will remain largely below severe limits. A capping inversion is in place just above the surface this morning, mitigating a large severe weather threat.  Sometime between 11 AM and 1 PM, it appears that the cap will break, and that will lead to the rapid development of supercell thunderstorms capable of producing hail in excess of 2 inches in diameter, strong straight line winds, and a few tornadoes. An isolated strong tornado cannot be ruled out, but the greater threat for strong tornadoes today will exist in central and northern Alabama, well east of our area. Storms finally exit the area this evening. Temperatures today will top out in the upper 70s, with lows overnight in the 40s and 50s.
