Short Term Severe Thunderstorm Threat for the Western Counties

| June 5, 2020 @ 5:12 pm

A mature MCS has formed over northern Mississippi late this afternoon. Trailing precip shield continues to expand and this should aid forward propagation across the remainder of the Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Central Mississippi. The latest radar data suggests the leading squall line is moving south at 30 knots and at this speed the squall line should exit the watch in about 2 hours.

The extreme eastern edge of that MCS will affect the western counties in Central Alabama and the potential is there for severe thunderstorms with isolated damaging wind gusts up to 60 MPH.
