JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The National Weather Service says a line of storms will push across Mississippi Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.
David Cox is a meteorologist with National Weather Service in Jackson. He says a squall line that will move across Mississippi could affect much of the state.
Cox says there's a potential for damaging winds, hail, tornados and 3 inches of rain or more in places.
The area west Interstate 55 is under the greatest risk for tornados.
Cox says the risk of tornados in not high, but there is a possibility.
The weather is expected to come into Mississippi Wednesday evening and push across the central part of the state around midnight as it moves east.
