Severe storms possible in the Delta

There is a slight risk of severe weather from late afternoon through late evening across northwest Mississippi, including the Mississippi Delta.

A squall line continues to develop in eastern Arkansas, along a developing cold front. This cold front and associated squall line will move into northwest Mississippi and the Mississippi Delta this evening. A Tornado Watch is in effect in this part of the state through 10PM. In our coverage area, only Humphreys County is a part of the watch.

The squall line will push east and southeast overnight, weakening as it does so. A broken squall line may make it to the I-20 corridor very late tonight before completely falling apart.

The cold front will continue to move southward through tomorrow. I expect showers and heavy storms to develop along and just ahead of the front tomorrow afternoon across south Mississippi. It appears the front will stall over the southern part of the state or just south of our region, before returning to the north as a warm front on Tuesday.

As the warm front lifts back over us Tuesday, scattered showers and storms will develop across the region. A few strong storms will be possible.

By late week, another cold front will overtake the weakening warm front. This will finally push the muggy and warm weather south of the region in time for the weekend.

Family members of the victims are concerned for the safety of the community, as are new members of the Clemency Board.
