JULIA'S FORECAST: Be weather aware! Severe storms possible

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It's back to work! Careful as you go this morning- storms last night brought wind damage in the form of downed branches and power lines to areas mainly north of I-20. Speaking of those farther north, that's actually where the greatest threat for rain and storms will be through the course of our Monday.

Otherwise, expect warm and humid conditions. Highs will be in the upper 80s. By the late afternoon, nearly everyone has the shot at seeing thunderstorms. Rumbles of thunder will be intermittent through the overnight, and some storms could be severe.

A squall line will approach early on Tuesday, bringing widespread rain and storms. The biggest concern with these storms will be strong gusting winds and hail. We advise you to stay weather aware over the next couple of days!

    Patient safety is paramount in hospital settings and traditionally, it has taken one-to-one care 24/7 for some of the most at-risk patients. KPLC's Britney Glaser shows how a new video monitoring system is keeping patients safe and freeing up nursing staff for other duties.
