MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - There is a slight risk for severe weather this evening and tonight. A TORNADO WATCH is in effect for portions of the Mid-South until 1 AM.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed us under a slight risk for severe weather. The main threats will be large hail, heavy rain, and gusty wind. The tornado threat is low but one or two tornadoes are not out of the question. Storms that develop tonight will be similar to some of the hail-producing storms that we had Sunday evening. Not everyone will see stormy weather tonight as the storms will be more isolated.
Isolated storms will be most likely in eastern AR and areas along the Mississippi River from 8 PM to midnight.
Storms could linger in northeast MS and southern TN from Oxford to Selmer through 2 AM.
Super Tuesday will be mainly dry, mild and mostly cloudy with a slight chance of a few showers.
Be sure and download the WMC Weather App just in case warnings are issued. It will alert you to storms only located over your area. We’ll be watching the radar and we’ll keep you advised online and on TV.
