JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Wednesday is an Alert Day across Central Mississippi due to the threat of severe weather. It will impact the entire region, but not everyone will get the worst of the weather, and certainly not at the same time.

Tuesday night, there were reports of tornadoes, damaging wind, and hail. The system continues to threaten our area throughout Wednesday.

Flash flooding will also be a risk for the morning commute Wednesday. Rainfall of 3 to 6 inches should be easy to come by, but up to 10 inches of rain is possible.
