The Storm Prediction Center says northwestern MS is part of an area that faces an enhanced risk of severe weather starting Tuesday afternoon. No widespread severe weather is expected, but one or two storms could have damaging straight line winds and/or large hail.

The high winds from the south are coming in out ahead of a strong cold front that will move in this evening.

Our severe weather threat should wind down by 11 p.m. this evening.

The threat for severe weather ends shortly after midnight, then colder air rushes in.

He called it a "total surrender to the false campaign in the media" and said the credibility of the government was at stake. Most arrived in Israel in the second half of the last decade, crossing from Egypt before the route was sealed.

A few positional questions linger as to how far north the warm front lingers, and this may give our northern counties a few more pop-up storms. Even outside of thunderstorms we could get winds gusts up to 40 miles per hour.

The Storm Prediction Center has placed an ENHANCED RISK for severe storms over the entire WMC Action News 5 coverage area. These storms will be aided by a strong jet of winds over 60 miles per hour at around 5,000 feet above the ground, and instability fueled by cold upper air temperatures and surface dew points nearing 60 degrees. Winds could gust to 50 miles per hour at times tonight and tomorrow. Note, this line will be weakening with time. The greatest risk for severe weather will be east of I-57 in IL.

Temperatures for Thursday morning will start in the low to mid 40s for the Capital area, climbing into the low to mid 70s for the afternoon. We will likely see some patchy frost by early Thursday.

Another system will roll in here later Friday and Saturday, with the potential for rain and snow.
