8/19 – Payton’s Monday Afternoon Forecast


We will see rounds of heavy rain today, so keep the umbrella close by. The flooding threat is low, but if you get stuck under a downpour you could pick up a couple of inches of rain fairly quickly. Tonight will trend drier, but a few showers are still possible. The rain and clouds should keep temperatures in the mid to  upper 80s today. Tuesday will be similar with a little less rain expected. Highs will be in the upper 80s. The driest days look to be Wednesday and Thursday although there will still be a few t-storms across the area. As we head into the weekend we’ll have to keep an eye on a tropical wave in the Caribbean. The wave isn’t really expected to develop into much, but it will bring deep tropical moisture into the Gulf and potentially South Mississippi. If this plays out we’ll likely see heavier rain later this week and into the beginning of next week. There is still a possibility this doesn’t get close enough and the moisture stays to our southwest. For now we’ll just watch it.

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.
