8/8 – Rob’s Thursday Morning Forecast


We are expecting another typical hot and humid day across the region. Northwest flow will allow a weak disturbance to dive southeast across northern Mississippi this afternoon. We will maintain a chance of t-storms across the region this afternoon, especially north of Hattiesburg. There is some indication the upper level high will inch slightly east and slightly decreasing the rain chances across west zones on Friday. Warm layers associated with the high may suppress most convection but isolated activity is possible.

Another wave is anticipated to dive south late Friday night bringing a chance of storms late Friday night after midnight into Saturday. Upper level high-pressure will remain positioned over northeast Texas and with disturbances along the edges and east side Saturday and Sunday. An Upper level high-pressure will continue to push east over the ArkLaMiss region suppressing most convection not all early next week and continued warm and muggy conditions. Heat indices will be in the low 100s through early next week so remember summertime safety tips.

Payton received his Bachelor of Science in Geography and a Minor in Meteorology.

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.
