Severe Weather Update- Starkville, MS
This is the current radar image. Notice the line of thunderstorms stretched from eastern Texas northward through Arkansas to continue pushing east this afternoon along a cold front. These storms are about 320 miles west of Starkville and will continue moving east at around 60 MPH, reaching Starkville by around 6:30 PM. Additional thunderstorms will begin to develop ahead of this initial line as temperatures and dew points rise. The red box over central/western Arkansas and north/northeast Louisiana and Texas is a Tornado Watch box which is currently in effect until 6PM. I expect more watches to be added to this as the afternoon progresses. I'll update this as the storms develop this afternoon.
