Bitterly Cold Temperatures Overnight


UntitledAfter a very rainy end to our weekend temperatures are going to stay unseasonably cool especially through Tomorrow. Expect a very breezy northwest wind throughout the day with high temperatures only topping out around 40 to the mid 40s in some spots. Overnight is where the real chill factor will kick in. Lows are expected to drop into the low 20’s and even the teens in some areas(mainly North Mississippi).

Heavy Rain and Thunderstorms Today/Tonight-Coldest Temperatures This Season Tuesday Morning

A frontal system pushing through will continue to intensify throughout the day. There is the potential for severe thunderstorms in south Mississippi. The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted this area in the “Slight Risk” area below. Damaging winds and maybe a tornado or two cannot be ruled out. Untitled

Due to a slow moving frontal boundary much of the state will receive pretty substantial amounts of rainfall through Monday. Most forecast models are depicting generally 1-3 inches of rainfall with higher amounts in isolated areas. Flooding will also be of concern through the afternoon and overnight. Expect showers to slowly diminish from west to east before much colder air rushes into our area. Lows Monday night are forecast to drop to the lowest we’ve experienced this season. Portions of Northeast Mississippi are expected to drop into the teens early Tuesday morning.

Heavy Rain Expected Sunday

namSE_prec_precacc_057Starting Saturday Night scattered showers will gradually develop and move in from the west. As a low pressure centers over much of the lower Mississippi Valley rainfall/coverage will increase as we go into Sunday. With a few parameters showing signs of embedded thunderstorm potential, some areas could see decent rainfall totals within a short period of time. This boundary will be moving slow through the state with the peak of activity expect Sunday into Sunday Night. Current forecast calls for anywhere from 1-3 inches of rain although areas that experience training heavier rain bands could see locally higher amounts above 3 inches. Right now flooding does appear to be a concern but only for areas that experience those heavier rainfall rates.

UntitledThe Cold front will be clearing through the area Monday Morning and behind that will be more cool and dry air. Also expect some blustery conditions Monday to go along with those cooler temperatures. Due to snowcover expected in states north of Mississippi, that northwesterly wind will assist in filtering in that cold air bringing low temperatures Monday night into the low and mid 20s and even the teens in North Mississippi.

Rain Chances Rise Next Week

image8image9

Enjoy the nice cool and dry weather while it is here because our chances for rain look to increase by early next weekend. Fall like temperatures will persist through the weekend with highs in the 70’s to even the upper 80’s by Sunday and lows at night dropping into the mid 40’s and 50’s. Plentiful sunshine will be present through early next week before our next disturbance moves in.  A cold front will approach from the north Tuesday bringing showers ahead of it. Also areas of south Mississippi can expect showers associated with the amounts of gulf moisture surging inland. Another chance for rain will return again next Thursday but details are still skeptical so stay with us for updates but right now models are generally in agreement of some sort of disturbance moving through although the strength of this disturbance is still to far out to determine.

MSC Covers Confirmed EF-2 Tornado Damage-Monroe, LA

While our target areas were mainly within the North Louisiana and Western portions of Mississippi we found ourselves well into Louisiana where we knew we would meet up with a strong squall line. That squall line would produce an EF-2 tornado that tracked through West Monroe, LA leaving a path of damage along with a lot of wind damage. Below is our video coverage on The Weather Channel. We were also featured on NBC and ABC News affiliates covering this event. Afterwards much of the event was just heavy rain for much of the area. Tornadoes were also confirmed in Arkansas and Tennessee making this one big way to start the “Fall” severe weather season in the southeast!

(Our view of a tornado producing supercell in Yazoo County April 28, 2014)

MSC Covers Tornado Warning LIVE on Fox 40/WLBT Channel 3

Since the very start of Mississippi Storm Chasing(MSC) we have always tried to make others aware of impending severe weather. Through social media, through storm chasing, and even by just talking to the public on our chase trips. This past Monday(April 28) we reached a milestone in our chasing careers. We covered a tornado warned supercell LIVE on the highest rated TV station in the state of Mississippi. We streamed a large rotating supercell live for nearly 15 minutes straight as the severe thunderstorm was baring down on Yazoo City. Not long after observing the storm we spotted a tornado but only briefly. Our report was relayed to the National Weather Service as well as all media outlets within the warned area. Not only did we provide the report but we were also covering it live with streaming video. So not only could those in the warned area hear about it but they could see it. We were the eyes on the ground very close to the circulation feeding back valuable information to warned citizens ahead of the storm. THANKFULLY the storm weakened soon after and did not cause any damage. Imagine if it was in a more dangerous situation though. What if the tornado had continued on into this populated area. We continue to strive to help organizations such as the NWS  with the warning process by providing live images of warned thunderstorms as much as possible. We will continue to do this, but this past event we reached a goal we had been shooting for for some time now. Again thank you to all of our followers! We couldn’t do it without you. We look forward to providing you with the latest information concerning severe weather and to help keep other Mississippians safe!
