1/18 – Rob Knight’s “SEVERE Threat Saturday” Forecast

A warm/humid afternoon is on-tap under cloudy skies. The SW flow off the Gulf will set the stage for a front to move through the area Saturday morning. This front will bring a chance of showers and storms. Some of those storms could be strong or severe.

The Storm Prediction Center has portions of the area in Slight Risk of SEVERE thunderstorms

Guidance still suggests that a line of showers and storms will move through the area Saturday morning with strong straight line winds as the primary threat. The tornado risk is low but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. The front moves through late Saturday morning into the afternoon and the temperatures will fall quickly behind the front during the day on Saturday. Sunday will be cool and breezy as cold air advection continues.

This Arctic air will only be a glancing blow and short lived as we warm up quickly on Monday. There will be freezing temps across south Mississippi Sunday night into Monday. The area of high-pressure moderates and shifts east allowing return flow by Monday afternoon in advance of the next system to move through the area middle of next week.
