An intense line of strong and severe storms in the Mississippi Delta will weaken overnight. The storms will continue to head southeast through the overnight, but they will run into more stable air over central Mississippi. This will cause the line to weaken as they get closer to the Natchez Trace Parkway.
The storms are along a strong cold front that will push through the area through Monday. As the front pushes into south Mississippi, it will begin to slow down. If the front hangs on in the southern part of the state Monday afternoon, new storms may form along the front and they could be strong.
Again, for tonight, the severe weather risk will be confined to areas north of I-20. The risk of severe weather will wind down through the overnight hours. South Mississippi will stay rain-free overnight, but may have some rain and storms on Monday afternoon.
I'll be in the First Alert Weather Center overnight tracking the storms. Please follow me on Twitter by clicking here for frequent updates.
