07/12 Ryan’s “More Rain” Monday Evening Forecast

More afternoon showers ahead....

No surprises this afternoon as we saw more showers and thunderstorms moving in. There were a few accumulations of 4″ or more, but overall it wasn’t too bad compared to several days last week. The main issue is the ground is still saturated, so even a moderate amount of rainfall could cause some localized flooding issues.

This trend is very similar to the last few weeks we’ve seen, but I do expect overall rainfall to be lighter this week.

Expect tonight’s low to linger in the mid 70s again, with partly cloudy skies and an off chance of a coastal shower. Tomorrow’s high will remain similar to today’s, near 87 degrees with partly sunny skies and more afternoon showers. I’m only giving it 20% for the next couple of days, and models are only predicting a few hundredths of an inch of rainfall across most of South MS through Wednesday. It looks like we’ll see another pop of activity as we finish off the week (40% on Friday), but it quickly get back to “normal” by the start of the next.
