A look at tonight...

Showers and Thunderstorms are moving across Mississippi right now. Several Severe Thunderstorm Warnings have been issued so far today, but no reports have been reported. No reports is a good sign as usually, but I'm keeping a good idea on the storms right now to make sure nothing surprises us. The big story tonight is the activity happening right now and then another wave happening late late tonight. Storms moving eastward right now are known as elevated storms because most of the instability is rooted above the surface, and elevated storms are prone to producing hail. They also can produce very loud thunder. After midnight we expect to see surface based instability, which will be the more delicate situation. I'm still uncertain on how this first round of thunderstorms modifies the atmosphere for the surface based instability later tonight. I'll keep watching throughout the night. Stay safe and turn your weather radio on. - Tanner Cade
