8/22 – Rob’s Thursday Morning Forecast


Rain will move into the area today with isolated t-storms as well. Temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 80s

By Friday, we will continue to see surges of shower/storm clusters driven by outflow boundary moving north. While the overall atmospheric moisture profile remains the same, an increase in southerly flow will continue the saturation process. This may be concerning with the potential for flash flooding and a few strong thunderstorms.

This pattern will persist into the weekend, with continued high chances at shower and t-storms. As a trough of low-pressure propagates from the Bay of Campeche, the main impacts in our area will be increased shower and t-storm chances this weekend and into early next week, with a steady but gradual shift back to typical afternoon shower/storm coverage by mid-week. Long-range guidance has been hinting at some possibility of a potential “cold” front passage late next week into next weekend that (may) bring a slight break in the heat and rain chances, but will monitor trends as we get into early next week should this potential become reality.

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.
