Stormy Monday, and looks like Tuesday's just as bad

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

This morning's squall line of T-storms reached beyond 100 miles in length as it marched across the state in the early morning hours. We'll maintain a 70% chance of showers and isolated T-storms, with winds pushing out of the southwest at 10-15 mph.

There's also been a history of quick accumulations of the showers reaching beyond 1/2" or more; so there is a chance of a bit of flash flooding associated with the line of storms.

Tonight the likelihood of showers is still an immediate threat due to a second cold front pushing through our area. Overnight chances of rain and showers continue above 60% up to 80% possibilities; and lightning expected with this second wave of rain.

Overnight temps will stay in the lower 60s; and winds shifting northeast

Storms are expected in the early morning hours for Tuesday, with at least a slight chance of those same showers lingering into the afternoon hours. We'll have a 70% chance of scattered showers in the early hours, then we'll see the few showers in place moving east quickly during the mid morning hours.

Highs are expected to only reach the 70s.  We should clear out Wednesday and the rest of the work week.
