10/30 – Rob Knight’s Halloween Morning Forecast
Fog this morning is isolated at best.
The main interest will be the weather associated with the cold front that will move through overnight into Thursday. The SPC has moved the Enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms a little farther eastward.
All severe thunderstorm attributes will be possible with all of this activity…
very heavy rainfall, damaging winds, tornadoes, continuous lightning and hail.
If plans are to be out in the overnight period, please stay alert of any warnings that are posted for your location.
The system moves east and should be moving into the Mississippi coastal counties around daylight Thursday and finally out of the land areas of the region during the afternoon. Most locations should accumulate from 1 to 3 inches of rainfall total. There is the potential that an isolated location could see a higher amount but should not be much in excess of 3 inches. This amount of rain will come down within a short time, so flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas is expected. Damaging wind speeds should be the most widespread issue with the squall line but there will also be the potential for isolated tornadic activity embedded.
After the front moves through, things will stabilize as cool dry air begins to move in Friday into the weekend.
