10/20 Ryan’s “Summer Again?” Friday Forecast
It’s starting to feel like late summer again out there as the humidity continues to rise, and temperatures remain in the low 80s/upper 70s. This trend will continue, and increase through the weekend ahead of a cold front expected to move through Sunday evening. Before it gets here though, an upper level trough will help initiate some afternoon showers and thunderstorms in the South Mississippi area, though we’ll have to wait until Sunday for the stronger storms. Severe weather parameters indicate strong storms are likely, but don’t yet indicate they will will be severe, and no official SPC severe threat has been issued yet. We’ll continue to watch the situation and advise as needed.
After the front moves through, even colder and drier air than we saw at the beginning of this week will move in, dropping temperatures as low as the upper 60s in the afternoon and upper 40s at night. These classic fall conditions will last through the rest of the week.
The tropics still have no areas of significant development.
