11/30 – Rob’s “Disruptive Weather…Then Rain” Thursday Forecast
A cold front over Arkansas and western Louisiana will continue to move east across the lower Mississippi valley and central Gulf coast region today and tonight. The front will push slowly through the forecast area this evening with minimal activity associated. A somewhat unusual mix of isolated to scattered showers and areas of fog, some dense, is occurring in advance of the boundary across Mississippi, with more widespread dense fog closer to the coast and over the nearshore marine area where water temperatures are coolest. The Dense Fog Advisory is in effect through mid-morning.
Rainfall is still expected to be light with most areas likely receiving amounts from a trace to about one quarter inch. Drier air to the west and northwest will gradually end the rain chances from west/northwest to east/southeast this afternoon through tonight across land areas, but the frontal boundary will likely stall in the coastal waters and for that reason have maintained a slight chance of showers offshore into late tonight and Friday morning.
