03/16 – Brantly’s “More Rain Tomorrow, Storms Wednesday Night” Forecast
Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will continue on and off through Thursday afternoon. Expect rain chances to be at about 60 percent during the morning Wednesday, rising to about 80 or 90 percent by Wednesday evening. High temperatures will be in the mid 70s.
Strong to severe storms will be possible across the Gulf Coast starting late Wednesday afternoon and lasting through early Thursday morning. All modes of severe weather are possible, including the potential for gusty winds, isolated tornadoes, and hail. Overall, weather models are in high agreement with the Storm Prediction Center’s risk for severe weather. Portions of Coastal Mississippi (Hancock, Harrison, and Jackson Counties) are under a Level 2 out of 5 risk for severe weather, while inland areas (including Pearl River, Stone, and George Counties) are under a Level 3 out of 5 threat. Current timing shows the bulk of the nasty weather moving into the area after 8 p.m. Wednesday and exiting east by about 3 a.m. Thursday. A quick moving cold front will then clear out any lingering rain by sunrise Thursday.
Thursday into the weekend, the weather is relatively quiet with sunny skies and cooler air moving in. Highs will be in the mid 60s with overnight lows in the mid to upper 40s.
