Good Monday morning! At 9:30am, we’re watching several clusters of showers and storms move north or northeastward across the area. Expect a good chance of occasional rain and thunder today. While it won’t rain all day, there will be portions of the day where you get some rain. We just had a close call for a tornadic storm near Amory, MS that actually dropped a tornado. Fortunately, it weakened before moving into Marion County. The risk of severe weather for the rest of today is low, as the airmass is rather stable. That being said, I wouldn’t be shocked if some storms produce gusty winds and small hail.
If you have outdoor plans today, there will likely be some interruptions with rain and thunder. I would have an indoor option if possible. If you are going to the lake or river today, please use common sense and go indoors if you hear thunder. If you hear thunder, you are close enough to be struck by lightning. Some storms could be rather strong and produce heavy rain and intense lightning today. There is a low end severe weather risk for Tuesday, as the environment becomes a little more favorable for damaging winds and hail. I don’t expect much of a tornado risk on Tuesday, but we’ll keep an eye on radar trends to be safe…
