Stormy Thursday afternoon forecast

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Strong to severe storms are expected to develop over the coming hours.

All modes of severe weather are possible, including damaging straight line wind, large hail, and tornadoes.

While most of the state is at risk for severe storms, the severe parameters will be maximized roughly north of U.S. Highway 84, and along the eastern side of I-55.

The storms are expected to hit during the mid afternoon into the evening, generally between 2 p.m. and 10 p.m.

It won't storm constantly everywhere within that time frame; but this is the main window of opportunity for the strongest storms.

Make sure you have a NOAA Weather Radio set and ready to go, along with our WLBT First Alert Weather App.

We will go live on TV and on our website (http://www.msnewsnow.com) as soon as a tornado warning is issued.
