Light to moderate rain started falling on the Jackson metro area early Tuesday afternoon.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Alan Campbell said residents should expect showers and isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and early evening that could bring wind gusts of 25-30 mph.
“It looks like some strong, damaging winds are going to be the primary concern with any storms that develop this afternoon,” Campbell said. He said the most severe weather is expected in northern Mississippi, but it isn’t ruled out in central Mississippi.
The series of storms moving east are expected to be out of Mississippi this evening, ushering in clear skies and replacing today’s highs in the 60s with low temperatures in the mid-30s by Wednesday morning.
The area is currently under a lake wind advisory, warning boaters to either stay off the water or use extreme caution if they’re out.
