10 PM UPDATE: Storms have had a hard time developing across our area tonight which is good news! The atmosphere was likely worked over by early morning rain and storms along the Gulf Coast this morning. Still, there are storms in central Mississippi that will likely continue east and move into Alabama after midnight. The trend is for these to weaken. Still, heavy rain, lightning, gusty winds and small hail may accompany the strongest.


PREVIOUS: There is a chance for a few strong to severe storms this evening and overnight. The main threats from severe storms will be large hail and 50-60 mph wind gusts. The tornado threat is low but not zero. Stay weather aware into the early overnight hours.

Here’s how the radar could look later tonight:

Showers will linger through the day Friday with a mostly cloudy to partly sunny sky and highs in the low 70s. The data is trending drier Saturday as a weather system tracks to our south. Keep checking back as we update the weekend forecast if you’re heading to Panoply.
