08/07 Ryan’s “Front Arrives” Monday Evening Forecast
It was a muggy afternoon in South Mississippi today, and with a quasi-stationary front moving into the area, it’s expected to remain that way for several days. A cold front is now stretching into the North AL/MS/GA border, and will not make it much further South than that. This will keep somewhat drier air blocked to the North of the border, with humid “tropical” air to the South…where we are. This means that the next several days will be warm/hot and humid, with a decent chance of showers and thunderstorms each day, generally during the warmest parts of the day. While widespread, organized rain is not expected, some of the rainfall can be locally heavy, so travel carefully during active weather.
TS Franklin in the tropics is still forecast to make landfall on the Eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula tonight and the East coast of Mexico over the next few days, and will likely not be an issue for South MS. Another disturbance 1000 miles East of the Lesser Antilles has a 20% of becoming a named storm by the weekend.
