2/1 - 6:10pm - Severe Weather in North Mississippi

After a rainy start to the day and peeks of sunshine this afternoon, we're tracking a line of storms moving through the northern half of Mississippi. There is a Tornado Warning out for parts of Carroll and Grenada Counties due to some rotation present in that part of the storm. Severe Thunderstorm Warnings are in effect up and down this line right now, mainly for the strong wind threat they pose. The environment is not favorable for these storms to maintain their strength over the eastern half of Mississippi, so they should begin to fall apart soon.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for northeastern parts of Mississippi until 11pm CST:

While I do not have a full Mississippi State weather forecast today, I did record a "weather tease" in my broadcast meteorology class today. This is just a 45 second preview of a forecast that would come later in a newscast. Check it out below:
