3/16 – Brittany’s “Pleasant” Wednesday Afternoon Forecast
Quiet conditions through St. Patrick’s day with linger cloud coverage and mild temperatures In the 70s. The forecast gets active again Thursday night and early Friday. Our next disturbance is expected to dive SE of the Rockies Thursday night into Friday.
This system will be quite dynamic, with the potential for SEVERE WEATHER along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Luckily this next system does appear to be quick much like Wednesday mornings event otherwise the threat for flash flooding could be a concern. As for the severe aspect we will have instability, forcing, and shear to work with. Right now the best chance for severe storms looks to be along and north of the I-10/12 corridor with the greatest concern over SW Mississippi and adjacent LA parishes. The potential threat will include HEAVY RAIN, STRONG WINDS and possibly SMALL HAIL.
High-pressure will move in this weekend with a few fleeting clouds but plenty of sunshine for the introduction of Spring.
