Winter Storm Shifting From the Central U.S. to the Northeast; Severe Thunderstorms in the South

A winter storm will track to the Lower Mississippi River Valley by Monday and across the central Appalachians Monday night to southern New England by Tuesday. A swath of snow, sleet and freezing rain will spread from the Central Plains east into southern New England by Monday and Tuesday. Severe thunderstorms with damaging winds and tornadoes are possible over the northern Gulf Coast on Monday. Read More >

 

Summary:

A few elevated supercells moved through north Mississippi during the afternoon hours on Saturday. Driven by strong winds aloft and extremely fast storm motion (>70 mph), large hail fell across much of north central Mississippi. Some of the biggest hailstones were 1.25 inches, reported in Tula, Blue Springs, and Batesville, MS. Luckily, no significant reports of damage or injuries were received.
