5/11 – Jeff Vorick’s “Low-End Severe Thunderstorm Potential” Thursday Evening Forecast

Showers and thunderstorms have been popping up across South Mississippi over the last several hours. Expect the possibility of efficient rainmakers and frequent lightning for the next couple of hours. A low-end threat for severe thunderstorms is in play tonight. A cluster of thunderstorms may make enough of a push southward to bring the potential for damaging winds.

Shower and thunderstorm activity will come to a close overnight as the atmosphere cools off. Light fog cannot be ruled out but expect warm and muggy conditions to persist. There is a 20% chance of thunderstorms for Friday afternoon but widespread rain is not on the table. High pressure will build in this weekend leading to beautiful but warm conditions.

There is the potential for some change to the pattern next week. A cold front could make its way into South Mississippi at some point during the middle of the week. However, there is not a lot of certainty on exact rain chances or when a cool-down could arrive.
