Here’s when the storms will hit tonight and how long they’ll last

A light fog settles over the Coast as a fishing boat sails in the Sound on Tuesday, November 29, 2016, in Gulfport. Thunderstorms and rain are expected for South Mississippi as another cold front pushes storm systems through the area. Temperatures should start dropping during the day, with highs in the 60s through the weekend and lows in the 40s through Friday, rising into the 50s Saturday and Sunday.

Late-night storms are again heading toward South Mississippi, and some of them could be strong enough to do damage.

A second, more-powerful cold front is moving across the Southeast after one moved through Monday night. The front is pushing storms that are expected to arrive overnight Tuesday and last into early Wednesday afternoon.

South Mississippi is under an “enhanced” risk of severe weather, according to the National Weather Service. It has five levels of risk, from marginal to high. Enhanced is the third level. Storms could bring damaging wind gusts, hail and tornadoes. The greatest threat is above Interstate 10, the weather service reports.

The rain is expected to start arriving after 10 p.m., and the morning commute is likely to be soggy with about a 50 percent chance of rain or above through noon.

Temperatures should start dropping during the day, with highs in the 60s through the weekend and lows in the 40s through Friday, rising into the 50s Saturday and Sunday.

There is a small-craft advisory until 6 a.m. Wednesday.
