Hazardous Weather Update

Severe weather is likely across the entire Mid-South. The greatest
risk is across north Mississippi. The primary hazards are
damaging wind and tornadoes. A secondary hazard includes flash
flooding.

Timing of severe storms will be most likely over east Arkansas
and the Missouri Bootheel during late morning to early afternoon,
and over west Tennessee and north Mississippi in the early to
late afternoon.

In addition to the severe weather threat, very strong non-
thunderstorm wind with gusts to 60 mph are expected across the
entire Mid-South. The wind will be sufficiently strong to cause
tree damage and power outages. It will also make travel difficult,
especially for high profile vehicles and particularly on east-
west highways.

Strong wind may also result in localized blowing dust around
freshly plowed fields resulting in diminished visibility.
