10/26 Ryan’s “Clear Skies, Sunshine” Thursday Forecast
This afternoon will be the last with unobstructed sunshine, as clouds will begin to thicken overnight as a cold front races down from the Central Plains. Return flow will continue to pump warm, moist air into South MS eventually leading to a few isolated showers before the stronger storms move in during the overnight hours. Currently, the Storm Prediction Center has South MS under a “marginal” risk for severe weather, meaning short lived tornadoes, heavy rain, and potentially damaging winds are possible. It does help some the storm is moving through overnight and not during peak heating, but we’ll continue to monitor the situation and advise accordingly. As with any potentially severe situation, our WXXV Weather app is a free and easy way to remain on top of these events with the latest information, invaluable during an overnight storm. The weather behind the front will be breezy as cool/dry winds rush into the Southeast, and it won’t be long before we’ll see an evening low in the 30s.
We’re still monitoring a disturbance in the Caribbean, but all sources point to it being forced East before entering the Gulf regardless of development. This will likely just bring heavy rain to Cuba, South Florida, the Keys, and the Eastern Bahamas over the weekend.
