02/19 Ryan’s “Worsening” Tuesday Evening Forecast

South MS weather continues worsening as more warm, unstable air moves in ahead of tomorrow’s front. There were no visibility issues last night due to the brisk northerly winds, but dense fog advisories have already been issued for tonight as winds shift southerly.

Rain chances have continued to increase as well and thunderstorms are expected by late morning tomorrow.

These storms currently have a “marginal” chance of severe weather but that could be increased as the front moves closer. Regardless of whether any severe weather actually happens we will still see thunderstorms, lightning, gusting winds, and heavy rains.

The rain will likely lead to localized flooding issues, and a coastal flood advisory has already been issued for Hancock county, so be on the lookout for standing water if you must travel.

River stages will need to be monitored over the next few days as the rain continues, and will be much heavier upstream. Rain chances finally begin to taper off through the weekend, but the grey, cloudy skies remain throughout.
