04/07 – Brantly’s “Warm with Showers Overnight” Wednesday Forecast

Highs today and Thursday will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s, with mid 70s at the beaches. Lows tonight will be mild due to increased moisture, ranging from the lower 60s inland to the mid 60s at the coast.

A cold front will move into the area late tonight and stall over the northern tier of South Mississippi’s counties and Southeast Louisiana’s parishes. The front will bring a line of showers and thunderstorms along with it. A few of these cells could become strong or even severe. The front will begin to move north Thursday night but will leave enough moisture and instability for showers and storms to develop again with daytime heating. Even though the environment is not looking impressive for strong thunderstorm development, the majority of the ingredients are high enough to cross thresholds where we have seen a few severe thunderstorms in the past. This should be the case Friday as well.

Heading into Friday night, models are showing there is better support for a strong line of thunderstorms to move through the area at a fairly fast pace. If any strong storms develop, we are looking at main threats being gusty winds with some pockets of heavy rainfall.
