09/29 Ryan’s “Clear Sky” Thursday Forecast
Another day of clear skies was promised and another gorgeous clear sky greeted South Mississippi today. Expect the drier and cooler conditions to continue through Friday and into Saturday, but a shortwave low pressure feature will bring a small increase in cloud cover on Sunday. Once that energy pushes the stationary boundary which has been hanging around the big bend area of Florida for the last few days, Monday and Tuesday will see more sinking, drying air and pleasant, fall-like conditions moving into the area. Wednesday is where the first significant chance of rain pops up, but it’s only around 20% so much of the area will remain dry. That’s just a precursor for another frontal boundary moving through the SE though, so cloud cover and rain chances increase into Thursday.
TS Matthew became Hurricane Matthew earlier today and further strengthening is expected. There is still some discrepancy between models as to when, and how sharply the system will turn North, but a Gulf Coast impact is unlikely at this point in the forecast.
