A significant fall storm will affect Oxford and the surrounding areas tonight and Tuesday.
An approaching cold front will collide with warm, unstable Gulf air, generating severe thunderstorms capable of large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes. According to the Lafayette County Emergency Management Agency, more than one round of convection is possible.
As the cold front crosses Arkansas, storm redevelopment is anticipated this afternoon, evening and overnight into Tuesday. Based on these projections, a large portion of the Midsouth will run the risk for nocturnal tornadoes.
The storm is anticipated to hit Lafayette County late this afternoon around 6 p.m.
