A cold front is expected to gradually move through the Mid-South and Coahoma County with heavy rain and wind predicted tonight and Wednesday.
A potential exists for a strong to perhaps an isolated severe thunderstorm or two tonight, mainly across portions of East Arkansas south of I-40 and over North Mississippi,” said Coahoma County Emergency Management director Johnny Tarzi. “Damaging winds are the main threat if any thunderstorm can reach server limits.”
Tarzi went on to say weather reports indicate the overall threat is expected to gradually shift to Northeasth Mississippi on Wednesday as the cold front pushes east towards the Tennessee River and Alabama.
Weather reports said damaging winds and hail will be the main threats Wednesday.
Localized heavy rainfall is possible with rainfall amounts between 1.5 and 2.5 inches Wednesday night.
Tarzi urged the community to contact him is they had questions or experienced damaging winds or flooding.
Anyone who experiences storm damage or sees a tornado or flooding is asked to contact 911 immediately.
Clarksdale and Coahoma County residents are urged to stay weather vigilant and monitor developments as weather forecasts can change quickly.
