    Heavy Rainfall, Gusty Winds to Affect Jackson Monday Night

    Showers and a few stronger thunderstorms will affect much of Mississippi through Tuesday morning.

    The main threats with these storms will be heavy rainfall, damaging winds and hail. However, some of the strongest storms could produce a short-lived tornado.

    Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue through Monday evening, some of which will contain heavy rainfall.

    Stronger thunderstorms coming down from the northwest will move into Mississippi Monday night. The strongest storms should be mostly west of Jackson.

    Much of the lingering shower activity will wrap up by midday Tuesday.

    The thunderstorms are being fueled by a combination of an approaching cold front and warm, humid air coming up from the Gulf of Mexico.

    The front will move out of the region by midday Tuesday. In its wake, it will turn cooler and less humid for Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday.
