Severe Weather Update - Mississippi

Just about every thunderstorm you see on the above image from the Jackson, MS radar is rotating.  In particular, the storms to the immediate Southwest of Jackson, to the Northeast of Philadelphia and between Walthall and Calhoun City are showing strong signs of rotation.

Thunderstorms in northern Mississippi are moving Northeast to East / Northeast at 50-60 mph.  Storms in southern Mississippi are moving East at about 50 mph.

The potentially tornadic portion of the storm Southwest of Jackson will pass south of the city, affecting Crystal Springs, Terry, Braxton and perhaps Florence.  There are other storms forming West of Jackson, and those will have to be monitored closely as they intensify and move directly toward the city over the next hour.
