Starting off the morning humid and warm with an upper level ridge trying to build across the Gulf of Mexico from the western Atlantic today. Meanwhile, a weak shortwave will track across east Texas, Arkansas and northern Louisiana. This will bring increased rain chances to at least the north an northwestern portions of the forecast area. A rebound of daytime temps is expected as well with highs back in the upper 80s to lower 90s. There is a marginal threat for severe weather, but the potential appears to be on the low-end with strong winds and small hail the main factors.

The remainder of the week will be characterized by upper level high-pressure building across the southern half of the country from Texas to the East Coast. It will be a daily battle between daytime heating induced convection and subsidence aloft. The high-pressure will weaken heading into the weekend as an upper-level disturbance will track out of Canada across the northeastern U.S., eroding the high-pressure across the southeastern US. This will allow strong daytime heating to produce numerous afternoon thunderstorms. Expect this summertime pattern to persist into at least the first half 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.
