8/7 – Rob Knight “Summertime Pattern” Morning Forecast

0

We continue to remain in a rather typical summertime pattern for this time of the year, with your average afternoon spotty thunderstorms followed by near-normal highs. Look for afternoon convection to develop across generally the same areas as yesterday, with perhaps a bit more coverage to the east across coastal MS enhanced by a northward moving sea-breeze.

T-storms yesterday did end up being a bit on the strong side, producing gusty winds and even small hail in a few places west of I-55. It is very possible t-storms this afternoon could be locally strong, similar to yesterday with small hail, strong gusty winds and localized flooding possible. This convection will drift north and dissipate near the evening time with partly cloudy skies and turning mostly dry overnight.

The patter will become more amplified mid-week through the weekend. This will help increase widespread afternoon storm chances through late this week, and even into the weekend as a series of potential disturbances will likely bring rounds of widespread convection even into the overnight hours at times.
