Moderate Risk for Severe Weather

The SPC has issued a moderate risk for severe weather on Thursday, and it sits right on top of Mississippi and Alabama. In short this means that there's the potential for golf ball to baseball size hail, strong damaging winds, and the potential for supercells that may produce long track tornadoes.

Now before you "head for the hills", know that the area at risk is rather large and I highly doubt that everyone in MS and AL will see weather like described above. In fact, current indicators suggest that central MS... North of 1-20 is at most risk for widespread severe weather. While in South MS, indicators suggest more isolated severe weather. The good news is that no matter where it passes in MS, it should be a daylight event.

We are still 24 hours out so everyone keep there guard up and continue to count on WDAM to bring you the latest.
