7/6 – Payton’s Thursday Evening Forecast


Another typical July day in South Mississippi with afternoon showers and thunderstorms. This trend will continue into the weekend as an area of high pressure that was sitting directly overhead will continue to make its way to the east. The rain chances will be greatest morning into the afternoon hours, but we could see a couple of nights with showers and thunderstorms, especially Friday and Saturday nights. We are not expecting widespread severe weather, but a few storms could be strong producing heavy rain, lightning, gusty winds and potentially very small hail. The rain chances continue into the beginning of next week as the tropical airmass stays in the area. High pressure will began to strenghthen back into the area toward the middle of next week dropping rain chances slightly, but we could still see afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures will continue to climb into the lower 90s everyday with heat index values near 100 degrees.

Payton Malone grew up in the small town of Archer City, Texas before moving to Norman, Oklahoma where he attended the University of Oklahoma. During his time at OU he interned as a meteorologist at KOCO in Oklahoma City where he experienced all types of weather ranging from tornadoes, flooding and winter storms. Payton received his Bachelor of Science in Geography and a Minor in Meteorology. Payton's interest in weather began at the very young age of six after a local broadcast meteorologist talked to his class about preparing for severe weather. That along with growing up in the middle of Tornado Alley, Payton has been hooked to the weather ever since. He is excited to move to the Gulf Coast and start a new adventure away from the plains. He loves venturing around the area finding new coffee shops, local places to eat, and he looks forward to being involved in the communities on the Mississippi coast.
