Very warm day, but some major changes are ahead...
Temperatures are soaring into the middle 80s this afternoon, which is more than 10 degrees above average! Unfortunately, this warm air will add 'fuel to the fire' in the development of strong to severe storms this evening and tonight as cold front moves across the state. Most of the storms should remain within a squall line, keeping the tornado threat minimal; however, damaging straight line wind and large hail are possible. The main line arrives in Central Mississippi between 6pm and 9 o'clock and South Mississippi between 9 o'clock and midnight. Due to the loss of daytime heating after sunset, the storms will progressively weaken as they move into South Mississippi.
After the cold front passes, pleasant air blows in from the north, decreasing humidity levels and dropping highs to near 70 degrees tomorrow. Clouds increase Easter morning in advance of a disturbance that will deliver hit and miss showers during the day. While it won't rain all day, be prepared for a passing shower at any point.
