2 pm update:
The Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been discontinued for Jasper, Newton, Scott, and Smith counties. The watch continues in effect for the rest of the Newscenter 11 viewing area.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for east Mississippi and west Alabama until 6 pm Sunday.

The following counties in the WTOK area are included in the watch: Lauderdale, Jasper, Clarke, Newton, Smith, and Wayne in Mississippi and Clarke, Choctaw, Sumter, and Marengo in Alabama.

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are favorable for severe thunderstorms to develop. Severe thunderstorms are capable of producing large hail, damaging straight-line winds, dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning, flash flooding, and occasionally tornadoes.

Anyone in the watch area should monitor WTOK and NOAA Weather Radio and keep up to date on warnings throughout the area.

Once again, a Severe Thunderstorm Warning is in effect for much of the Newscenter 11 viewing area.

Stay with WTOK.com and Newscenter 11 Weather for the latest on severe weather conditions.
