Heat continues to be the major concern through the latter part of the week. Temperatures continue to hit the low 90s with dew-points in the upper 70s bringing heat indices to the 100s, even with some isolated convection expected this afternoon to briefly dampening a few spots. It may only reach criteria briefly, but still expecting similar conditions from yesterday.
Beginning Thursday, an upper level disturbance located along the Atlantic coast will be digging southward around AL/MS/FL. This disturbance will move in from the east starting Thursday and will eventually stall over around southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi. There may be a COMPLEX of t-storms associated with this feature and this will bring a wetter pattern with more prolonged and sustained convection through at least early next week. This should help bring needed relief from the heat. However, any convection that forms is looking to be efficient rain producers which could lead to pockets of FLASH FLOODING. On top of that, the persistence of this rain may potentially set up for a heavy rainfall threat late this week into early next week.
