3/29 – Rob’s “Final Weekend of March” Forecast

The next appreciable chance of rain will begin Saturday afternoon. A cold front will move into northwest Louisiana around sunset Saturday, reaching the area by around midnight. Showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible across the forecast area ahead of the approaching cold front. Through this period, most of the t-storm activity should be relatively light but with increasing coverage. Best rain chances should be in SW Mississippi. Moving into the overnight period and Sunday morning, the cold front should be moving through the forecast area. Showers and thunderstorms will accompany and follow on the backside of this boundary. Temperatures will drop quite a bit behind the front. Highs will struggle to reach 60 degrees for most areas north of the coastal counties.

Monday remains much more uncertain due to differences in model solutions. An area of low-pressure will track from the SW’tern Gulf of Mexico to the NE…and depending on the proximity; we may get another shot of rain. A few models keep this system well to our Se and showing no precip for our area. High pressure building from the north will maintain cold air advection through Tuesday. This will keep highs and lows well below climatology for this time of year. It’s not until mid-week that we finally rise back to normal as a fast moving ridge passes across the area. Moisture returning late in the week will bring with it the possibility of rain to the region.
