Severe weather possible again this weekend

NATCHEZ — For a second straight weekend, the Miss-Lou could experience severe weather.

Adams County Emergency Management Director Stan Owens said the conditions for this weekend are similar to last weekend.

“There could be thunderstorms starting Friday and running through Saturday,” Owens said. “We have a very significant chance of having all types of severe weather — possibly tornadoes.”

National Weather Service Meteorologist Daniel Lamb couldn’t say at this point if it would be as destructive as the weather than moved through Mississippi last weekend. That severe weather brought a tornado that killed 10 people in north Mississippi.

Owens said this time the rain could continue into Monday, but that it was a little too early to pinpoint specific times for the storm.

“I just want everyone to take care of themselves and monitor their systems,” Owens said.

Lamb said the weird weather we have been experiencing has to do with the jet stream, which created an upper level system that caused the area to have an uncharacteristic dry season during spring.

“What happened is the upper level ridge broke down, and the jet stream dipped further to the south, which caused a storm system to develop and track closer to our area,” Lamb said.
