Tuesday's Severe Weather
A storm system will move into Mississippi today causing wind gusts up to 60-80mph! This type of wind force can cause significant damage. Strong tornadoes are possible throughout the state, so please have your weather radio on throughout the daylight hours. I do believe once the squall line sets up, it will race quickly across central Mississippi and should be into western Alabama by 7pm.
