Good Morning! A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for North MS until 7pm Tuesday. Rainfall amounts of 3-5 inches expected with locally higher amounts. Expecting multiple rounds of storms during this time period and these storms could train over the same areas which will increase the risk of flash flooding. Remember Turn Around, Don’t Drown. Do not try to cross over a flooded road. At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 71 and it feels like 71. Highs will continue to range between 68 and 83 with lows between 44 and 60. There is a 100% chance of strong storms today, and an 80% chance of strong storms on Tuesday. Major, widespread, and multi-day severe weather/tornado outbreak expected today through Tuesday across the Mid-South and Southeast. Main threats will be for tornadoes (some of which could be strong and long-tracked), large hail, and widespread damaging winds of 60-80mph. Dr. Greg Forbes, the severe weather expert at The Weather Channel, is giving a TOR:CON (Tornado Condition Index) of 7 for MS for today. This means there is a 70% chance of seeing a tornado within a 50 mile radius. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 71 and it feels like 71. Todays high is 78 and a low of 57 with a 100% chance of strong storms with South-Southwest winds at 16mph with higher gusts. Tuesdays high is 79 with an 80% chance of PM thunderstorms.
