03/15 – Brantly’s “Muggy” Monday Forecast

Cloudy skies will continue for the next few days as we enter an unsettled weather pattern. Highs Monday afternoon will then be similar to today, in the upper 70s to lower 80s north of I-10 and in the mid to upper 70s south of I-10. Low temperatures tonight are expected to be warm, in the lower 60s, due to ample moisture being brought in by southerly winds.

Isolated showers will begin over the interior portions of southeast Mississippi and southwest Alabama ahead of an approaching line of showers/storms from the west. Most models show this line weakening substantially and mostly dissipating by the time it enters our area.

High temperatures stay warm in the upper 70s through Wednesday and rain chances will gradually rise from 40% Monday to about 70% Wednesday as a cold front approaches from the west.  Severe storms will be possible Wednesday into Wednesday evening. The main threats, given the forecasted parameters, are likely to be damaging winds, frequent lightning, and large hail. A tornado or two would not be able to be ruled out, but it does not seem as likely for our area.

A few showers may linger into Thursday morning, especially over the eastern half of the forecast area, as the cold front will be moving off to our east. Most of this lingering precipitation will be in the morning, with clearing and rains ending from west to east during the afternoon hours on Thursday.
