3/23 – Payton’s Friday Evening Forecast


Moderating high pressure settled over the Deep South this afternoon
will move east through Saturday with onshore flow becoming better
established over the central Gulf Coast region through the
weekend. Upper ridging to the west will present a northwest flow
regime into the Lower Mississippi Valley that will usher a frontal
boundary into the mid-section of the Gulf States but stalling
north of the forecast area. The greater focus will likely remain
north enough to preclude mention of rain through Sunday.
Temperatures are a blend of guidance with a slight bias to warmer

Frontal zone retreats north as a warm front through the Plains
States and middle Mississippi Valley as deep troughing takes place
in the desert southwest. This is likely to maintain a corridor of
persistent steady rainfall through middle of next week that would
exacerbate ongoing high river flows for extended flooding impacts
along the mainstem heading into April. This rain area may become a
forecast challenge in the latter part of the forecast cycle but
should return better chances of rainfall to the local area
Thursday into Friday of next week.

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.
