A Stormy Week

This time of year in Mississippi is what I call the "transitional season". Winter is almost over and Spring is just a few weeks away and the weather is confused! Unfortunately, it usually translates into strong storms which quickly turn severe and pose a tornadic threat.

We have 3 opportunities this week to see active weather.

Tuesday morning, between 3am-Noon, a warm front will lift north through the state. Storms could form west of I-55.

A cold front will approach west Mississippi and slow down Wednesday. This will keep the weather unsettled and stormy in the morning which could continue through the afternoon.

A cold front will finally move through the state Friday. Therefore, storms will be possible throughout the day time and night time.

With all 3 events this week, we need to stay weather aware. We always get complaints when viewers lose their electricity or the satellite feed from their provider. This is all the more reason to have a NOAA Weather Radio so you are prepared should that happen and you can be woken up should a tornado be spotted in your area.

I'll be with you throughout all of the events on WLBT, my Facebook and Twitter pages.
