6/19 – Payton’s Wednesday Afternoon Forecast


Another hot and humid one with a low low chance of a popup t-storm on the coast.  For the inland counties we are watching a complex of t-storms in Louisiana and it will make a run at South Mississippi this evening. It appears much of the line will fall apart before reaching the area. There is a very low possibility a few t-storms hold together or redevelop, which could produce a few strong t-storms in the inland counties later today. The main concern would be for gusty winds.

A high pressure system is then expected to build over the area Friday through Sunday. Upper level convergence from this system will cause sinking air and stability in the atmosphere. There is still a high moisture presence and lifting in the environment through the weekend, however. Consequently, a shower or two is still possible during the daytime heating hours this weekend, especially Friday. At the beginning of next week, a weak upper level trough will build over our area again, and the chance of showers will increase slightly as atmospheric stability decreases from this system. A few showers and a possible thunderstorm are expected Monday through Tuesday.

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.
