7/23 – Payton’s Tuesday Afternoon Forecast


FORECAST: Keep the rain gear nearby this afternoon and evening. A cold front moving into the area will increase heavy rain and t-storms through the afternoon and evening. Some could produce very heavy rainfall, lighting and gusty winds. By tonight the rain should start to push offshore and dry  air will start to filter in. There isn’t any cold air with this cold front, but the drier air will allow temperatures to fall into the lower 70s along the coast to upper 60s inland for Wednesday morning. Wednesday afternoon looks beautiful with sunshine, warm temperatures and lower humidity. By Thursday some moisture returns and a few showers are possible, but it should still be rather nice outside. By Friday we’re back into the typical pattern and it’t hot and humid going into the weekend with increasing rain chances.

TROPICS: Tropical Depression Three has dissipated, but will continue to bring some rain along the East Coast. We will have to watch the Gulf of Mexico this week as the cold front stalls out in the Northern Gulf of Mexico. With persistent showers and t-storms over the Gulf this can sometimes lead to a low pressure developing. This time of year these lows can try to become tropical. Nothing to really worry about right now, but it’s something we’ll be keeping an eye on. Still many unknowns and a low pressure might not even form. The National Hurricane Center currently shows a very low chance of tropical development later this 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.
