Pop-up storms once again today, severe weather/heavy rain next week

By: JohnnyParker , 3:06 PM GMT on March 17, 2012

Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 69 and it feels like 69. Highs will continue to range between 69 and 87 with lows between 47 and 62. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms today. A few storms could be strong to severe with small hail and gusty winds being the main threats. Secondary threats will be heavy rain and localized flash flooding. For Wednesday into Thursday, there is potential for severe weather and heavy rain. Wednesday's chance of precipitation is 40% of scattered thunderstorms and Thursday's chance is 30% of isolated thunderstorms. Now, the question is: will this be a severe weather event or heavy rain event for the Mid-South. Well, as of now, I believe this will be a heavy rain/flash flooding event more than a severe weather event. This could change though as we get closer in time. However, there will still be a few strong to severe storms. Large hail and damaging winds will be the main threats with isolated tornadoes possible. Rainfall amounts will be 1-3 inches with locally 3+ inches in isolated areas. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 69 and it feels like 69. Todays high is 84 and a low of 58 with a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms. Sundays high is 85. Hope yall are having a wonderful Saturday and I'll have another post tomorrow. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and those affected by damaging weather events.
