07/10 Ryan’s “Summer Night” Monday Forecast

You can chalk today up as a textbook South Mississippi Summer afternoon! As the temperatures began to approach 90, which was our high today, showers and thunderstorms began to pop up along the sea-breeze front and moved inland. None of today’s storms lasted very long, but did bring an estimated 1-2 inches of rainfall to some very localized areas in Northern Harrison & Jackson Counties, and yesterday’s storm in Vancleave came with some impressive lightning. So while these summer storms are usually nothing to worry about, it’s always good to be “weather aware” if one occurs in your area. You can track these storms on the free interactive radar available on our WXXV Weather App.

Another tropical wave is moving away from the West Coast of Africa, and is moving westward into the open Atlantic. This wave has a small (~10% chance within 5 days) of becoming a tropical system, and despite dry air in the area, some gradual development is possible. We will continue to monitor the situation over the next several days.
