3/14 – Jeff Vorick’s “Cool” Tuesday Afternoon Forecast

Cool conditions continue today with high temperatures only maxing out in the low 60s. Clouds will be on the increase into this evening as a minor disturbance moves through the region. It will bring increased cloud coverage and a low-end chance of sprinkles overnight. The disturbance will clear the area by daybreak tomorrow.

Sunny skies will dominate the picture tomorrow with slightly warmer temperatures expected. As high pressure moves to our east, southerly flow will begin to set up. The moisture will take a bit to recover. Thursday will mark the return to above-seasonal conditions across South Mississippi. A dynamic frontal system will move into the picture towards the end of this week.

The system will bring with it a powerful cold front Friday. The ingredients are there for at minimum a line of showers and embedded thunderstorms with efficient rainmakers. Some specifics for severe thunderstorms still need to be ironed out. But, there is the low-end potential for severity with the activity.

Following the cold front, it will be quite cold this weekend. Some attention may need to be paid to a system developing on the tail end of the boundary for the beginning of next week.
