07/16 – Ryan’s “More Activity” Friday Night Forecast

More active today, but we're not quite to back to"monsoon" levels yet.

Much wetter in parts of South MS today as more widespread activity developed this afternoon. Today’s t-storms lasted longer, and brought higher short-term totals that topped 4″ in just six hours. That’s enough to cause some hyper-localized flooding issues, but no flood watch/warnings were issued. Despite the increase in amount of rain today, the rest of the night will be largely the same. Expect a mild low near 75 degrees with partly cloudy skies and a low chance of a coastal shower/t-storm.

Saturday afternoon will be similar to what we saw today with more rain than we’ve been seeing, but otherwise nothing too noteworthy.

Just watch out for those afternoon/early evening thunderstorms and a hot and humid high near 87. Sunday’s rain chances have risen by about 20% thanks to a weak, lingering front meaning we’ll see enhanced rainfall through the start of next week. After that it won’t take long to get back to our July average with highs in the upper 80s and around a 30% chance of an afternoon shower.
