04/02 Ryan’s “Enhanced Risk” Sunday Night Forecast

As of late this evening (Sunday, 10:42 PM), South Mississippi is under an “enhanced” risk for severe weather. This means numerous severe storms are possible, as are large hail, a few tornadoes, and damaging winds. The set up of this particular system implies that heavy rains will be the primary threat, causing flash & areal flooding, but all other modes of severe weather cannot be ruled out at this time. With the exception of a few showers and/or discreet thunderstorms moving in early, the main storm line is expected to begin affecting the Western edge of South Mississippi around 5 am. That’s right around the time Chief Meteorologist Rob Knight will begin his early morning shows, so we’ll have constant coverage if a dangerous situation develops. I also recommend downloading our FREE “Weather 25” smartphone app, since it will alert you with an alarm/announcement if any watches/warnings are issued for your area (if activated, but it should be the default setting). Please be “weather aware” during these early morning hours and into the early afternoon as this system passes by.

After tonight/tomorrow’s strong storms, we’ll see some rather quick cooling/drying on Tuesday, leading to a warm & sunny day. Wednesday will become cloudy and rainy again as our current frontal system will pull another up from the Central Gulf. A thunderstorm is possible, but moderate showers will be the most likely outcome. Afterwards, strong high pressure moves in and is expected to linger well into next week, bringing sunny and clear skies for nearly the next seven days.
