Severe Weather Update: Strong Tornadoes Possible in North Mississippi, Northwest Alabama

Mississippi is back in a level 3 (enhanced) risk for severe weather after being briefly removed.

First of all, the severe threat has shifted to generally to along/north of I-20 for today. This is because the storm system is tracking a but farther north than we thought it would earlier this week.

Other than that, there have been no changes. Activity has developed along and ahead of the front as expected, and will shift east through this afternoon and evening.

The greatest threat for severe weather will come between 2 PM and 6 PM CST, in the level 3 risk area.

All modes of severe weather will be possible, with tornadoes and damaging winds being the bigger threats.

A few strong tornadoes will be possible this afternoon from North Mississippi/Northwest Alabama to Southeast Missouri, Southern Indiana, and Southwest Kentucky.
