Weather Update for Winston Co Area as of 10:30 am

Local County and City Officials were just briefed by the National Weather Service on the hazardous weather conditions over the next 24-36 hours.  The majority of the state of Mississippi is under a flash flood watch until 7 am Tuesday morning. This includes Winston County although widespread rainfall projections have decreased slightly down to 1-3 inches from earlier projections of up to 5 inches. Still local amounts could be heavier.

There is still a moderate risk for damaging winds, large hail, locally heavy rains and possible tornado activity. Storms should develop in our area around mid to late afternoon on Monday and continue into the evening. This will be our time of greatest risk.

There is also risk of storms developing again on Tuesday. Winston Web News will continue to monitor and keep you posted as conditions change and develop.
