Friday Night: Strong to severe thunderstorms tonight & Saturday morning

Weather

FLASH FLOOD WATCH [now – Saturday 10:00 am]: Confidence continues to climb on the threat for heavy rain for our southern Mississippi counties and our northwestern parishes. Rainfall rates will be intense at times.

Tonight – Strong to severe thunderstorms. We sit under an Enhanced Risk for severe weather. The first wave arrives after 9:00 pm. The second wave arrives between 4:00 am – 9:00 am. Lows near 69.

Tomorrow – Storms exit by mid-morning. Clouds clear by the afternoon. Highs near 82.

Extended – Another line of strong to severe thunderstorms arrives late Friday night into early Saturday morning. Northern portions of the viewing area currently sit under an Enhanced Risk [3 of 5] for severe weather. All types of severe weather are possible: damaging winds, large hail, frequent lightning and heavy rain. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. Storms will quickly exit late Saturday morning. A sunny and seasonable pattern returns by Sunday. Expect pleasant pattern for the first half of the work week. Skies will be sunny and dry.

Daytime highs will hover in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Showers and thunderstorms make a comeback for Wednesday and Thursday.

Storms will need to be monitored for possible severity.  Looks like a quiet outlook to start the month of May.
