1/18 - 3pm - Mississippi State Forecast, KY/IN Tornado Update

It's still cold out there in Mississippi after a frigid morning with temperatures in the 30's.  A cold front that passed through yesterday is to blame for the chill, but fear not, temperatures will be back to around 60 for highs by tomorrow afternoon. Quick turnaround, huh? Some rain and a few storms will be possible Friday night into Saturday with temperatures still increasing. A shot of severe weather may be possible sometime around the middle of next week, so keep watch for more updates on that forecast as it becomes clearer. Today's Mississippi State University forecast video is below:

The count of yesterday's confirmed tornadoes in Kentucky and Indiana has now reached seven according to the National Weather Service in Louisville. The strongest of these was an EF-2 in Simpson and Allen Counties in Kentucky. Two of these tornadoes with winds of up to 100 mph occurred in highly-populated portions of the city of Louisville in Jefferson County. NWS Louisville is updating a webpage continuously with information about these tornadoes as it becomes available from their damage surveys.
