Storms are increasing this afternoon from the south as our weather pattern becomes more active.. As of 3;20pm, the better coverage of storms is located in Central & South Mississippi, producing heavy rain, frequent lightning, and gusty wind. For the rest of the afternoon and evening, a passing strong storm is possible at any point, but it will not rain constantly. The primary severe threat will remain west of the Mississippi River through this evening, but a storm complex currently located in Texas will move in late tonight and early tomorrow morning; while the storms will weaken as they head east, we can't rule out the potential for damaging straight line wind, especially in the Delta.
Additional storms develop during the day tomorrow; and once again, expect gusty straight line wind, frequent lightning, and heavy downpours. For the rest of the week, we remain warm, muggy, and unsettled; highs will run in the middle to upper 80s each day along with a scattering of showers and storms.
