FIRST ALERT: Tornado warning expires
First Alert Weather

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - A tornado warning was issued for Alcorn County in Mississippi and expired 12:45 p.m.

National Weather Service reports that the storm moved out of the area, allowing them to let the warning expire.

Still, the threat for severe weather remains in the Mid-South.

Winds are quite breezy across the region, coming out of the south around 15 to 25 mph this morning and gusting as high as 40 plus mile per hour at times. Therefore, the entire Mid-South is under a Wind Advisory through 7 p.m. tonight.

Our south winds, and warm temperatures continue to provide enough fuel for a few stronger storms to produce gusty winds and the possibility of a quick spin up tornado through midday today.

As this line pushes east of the region, the severe threat will diminish across the area, so once the line is through the region, we will see much better weather to end the day.

Just remember to have a plan in place. Have multiple ways to receive watches and warnings and keep it with the WMC Action News 5 First Alert Weather Team for the latest.
