Severe weather may move into area today

NATCHEZ — Residents of Adams County and Concordia Parish should expect severe weather this afternoon beginning around 3 p.m., meteorologists predict.

Adams County Emergency Management Director Stan Owens said the possibility for the strongest storms in the area will be between 4 and 8 p.m.

The storm can possibly bring damaging winds, large hail and the National Weather Service is not ruling a tornado or two, Owens said.

“Hopefully the most severe part of the storm will stay north of us,” Owens said. “But there is still that chance. We are moving into that spring severe weather season.”

Owens said to take the warning sirens seriously, and to seek shelter inside a substantial structure if sirens do sound. Stay tuned to local TV and radio stations for updates.

“If you’re in a mobile home, be careful,” Owens said. “Find a structurally sound location.”

A cold front will not follow the storm.

“The Weather Service said the low for tonight will be 59, so no major cold front is pushing in,” Owens said. “It’s a low pressure system drawing moisture from the gulf back into our area.”
