Parts of the Mid-South in line for severe weather this afternoon

At 11:30am, the Storm Prediction Center added parts of the Memphis metro to their Slight Risk zone for the possibility of severe weather, mainly for damaging wind and hail chances this afternoon.  An hour later, a Severe Thunderstorm Watch was issued for north and central Mississippi and southeast Arkansas.
