The heat is on: Spring weather brings possible severe weather tonightPublished 12:00am Wednesday, April 10, 2013
NATCHEZ — Sweating is back.
So, too, are swimsuits, swimming pools and the regular spring-time weather pattern, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Jo Ann Culin.
The high temperature broke the 90-degree mark for the first time this spring, but that will not last long, Culin said. An approaching cold front will bring with it a slight cool down, but it will also bring with it a threat of severe weather.
“A strong line of storms is expected to move through the area tonight into Thursday morning, bringing with it the possibility of damaging winds, tornadoes, large hail and heavy rainfall,” Culin said.
Even though high temperatures will dip back into the mid 60s Thursday, they will quickly warm back up into the weekend. Lows will dip into the 40s Thursday and will rise back into the upper 60s by Sunday.
“It is all a part of the regular spring-time pattern,” Culin.
