Sunday Storms: First Alert Weather Update

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

The WLOX First Alert Weather Team is tracking a line of thunderstorms over South Mississippi and the potential for a few of those storms to be severe. 

When and where?
The heaviest thunderstorms are expected now through 4 PM. The chance for showers and storms is generally the same for all 6 southern counties: Pearl River, Stone, George, Jackson, Harrison, and Hancock. Since storms are coming from the north, rain chances will start sooner for Pearl River, Stone, and George and end sooner. It will start and end later for the remaining counties.

How bad?
While widespread severe weather is not expected, one or two damaging wind gusts are possible with stronger storms. Since they will be moving quickly, the flooding potential is low. However, localized flash flooding is possible. Small hail is possible. The tornado risk is low, but not zero.

When does it all end?

The heaviest rain is expected generally between 11 AM and 4 PM Sunday. However, there could be another round of showers overnight into Monday morning.
