Another late Spring afternoon in South Mississippi, more showers and storms darkening the skies. This is our status quo for the foreseeable future.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEE AFTERNOON SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS, WHICH CAN HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO BECOME SEVERE STORMS, EACH AND EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK. UNFORTUNATELY IT DOESN’T STOP THERE.
These consistently rainy conditions will continue through the weekend and well into next week with little change. Rainfall totals can be locally high with individual storms each day, but overall widespread flooding is not expected.
WE’RE STILL MONITORING THE DISTURBANCE IN THE WESTERN CARIBBEAN SEA, WHICH HAS A LOW CHANCE (20%) OF TROPICAL DEVELOPMENT OVER THE NEXT 5 DAYS.
This system is a sharp surface wave with some support from upper level features but very strong shear. This shear and ample interaction with land has considerable lessened its chances of becoming tropical, but there is a small chance of that as it moves into the Bay of Campeche over the weekend. Most models still have it going further West into Texas or Mexico, but we’ll continue to monitor the situation.
