04/22 – Rob Knight’s “Windy” Wednesday Forecast
The next 36 hours will deliver showers/t-storms to the area with some of these becoming strong to severe. The first of these looks to arrive after dark tonight and should be mainly reserved for the northern third of the area and even that may only be over the NW portion. This line will begin to weaken as the night wears on while another line strengthens over the south shore. This line is expected to become a little more aggressive as it slowly moves offshore. Some of the area is under Day 1 slight risk for severe and this should be mainly be overnight tonight after midnight.
The Day 2 has much of the area under slight but also an enhanced risk of severe over the eastern half of south Mississippi as the line moves east. Numbers look good as far as severity is concerned and all modes of severe weather as well. Through the day Thursday, the severe threat looks to move offshore and become mainly a marine issue.
Thursday night and beyond, things look rather quiet for the remainder of the forecast. High pressure will build at the surface and we remain under northwest to west-northwest flow through Tuesday. This will keep the area cool and dry and finally a nice weekend without the threat of
