03/17 Ryan’s “Stormy” Wednesday Night Forecast

It’s quite stormy tonight as the line of thunderstorms we’ve been waiting for all week long has finally arrived. The severe threat has steadily risen over the last few days, reaching “high” just to our northwest earlier today. This set up a textbook example of severe weather formation, but so far there hasn’t been much in South MS.

A few localized areas have seen upwards of 2.5″ of rain over the last six hours, but so far there have been no reports of hail or tornadoes.

The line will leave the area within the next hour or so bringing sunny skies back to the coast. There will still be at least a few clouds lingering by sunrise, so expect partly cloudy skies, breezy WNW winds, and a cooler low near 56. Tomorrow cools even more as well, high now down to our monthly average of 70 with mostly sunny skies. The weekend will remain dry, but expect to see clouds building again by Saturday, though they’ll be gone again by Sunday. That’ll give us a few more sunny, drier days before wet and humid weather returns.
