The Mid-South region is under a SLIGHT RISK for the potential of severe weather today and tonight. The primary threats are damaging wind and large hail. This morning's showers and thunderstorms may be a fly in the ointment for the potential for severe weather later today, as the atmosphere is stabilized a great deal in the wake of the system this morning. If clouds can break and sufficient heating can occur, the threat increases for later this afternoon.
I also expect a line of storms to accompany the cold front as it sweeps through the region late tonight. These storms also pose the threat for gusty wind and heavy rain.
