Some Ingredients for a stormy weekend are in place across the southern states, including Mississippi.
According the to First Alert Weather Team we're in for a slight chance of severe storms primarily south of I-20. Flash flooding will be the primary concern with damaging winds and hail a secondary threat. While the tornado threat exists, it's low but high enough to mention the possibility.
By daybreak Saturday morning, the line of strong storms was moving over central Louisiana where several Severe Thunderstorm Warnings had been issued along with a Severe Thunderstorm Watch. Those storms will move east into Mississippi throughout the day. As that system moves closer to the Mississippi River, the threat of severe weather will go up. The line of storms will approach central Mississippi by late Saturday morning and move through the Jackson metro area between 1-4pm.
The severe weather threat will go away after 7pm Saturday. Scattered showers are expected on Sunday but the severe weather threat will be minimal at best.
