FIRST ALERT: Severe Threat Overnight

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Strong to severe storms arrive tonight after about 10 p.m. The threat is higher over North Mississippi, but still the potential for severe weather in Central and South Mississippi.

Storms will be capable of producing gusty wind, hail, and a few tornadoes. 

The primary severe threat ends Sunday morning before sunrise, but periods of rain along some thunderstorms will continue throughout the day with temperatures struggling to pull out of the lower 60s.

Temperatures remain above average through midweek, then turning a bit cooler Thursday into the weekend, after a threat of storms again Wednesday. 

Make sure you have our First Alert Weather App downloaded and ready to go before the storms arrive tonight.
