5/13 – Rob’s “Return of Sunshine” Morning Forecast
Flood warnings for all rivers in south Mississippi…
Great news to start out the new week! The slow moving front and associated upper-level disturbances responsible for the recent HEAVY RAINS & FLOODING has pressed well offshore this morning, which has allowed drier air to filter into the area. The only hazards to speak of for today, will be offshore convection early this morning.
Few lingering clouds across coastal areas, but primarily expect mostly sunny skies area wide today. A much drier air mass will come Tuesday morning, making it feel very nice and crisp around sunrise for a change. We will continue to warm up Thursday and Friday while remaining dry. Afternoon highs may climb into the upper 80’s once again, slightly above-normal for this time of the year while moisture slowly returns.
The next weather maker will push in from the west this upcoming weekend, as the upper-level ridge responsible for the dry and hot weather late week presses east, allowing for a long-wave trough axis to advance across the central US, and eventually the mid-western US. Main idea is there could be another shot at showers/storms this weekend and into early next week.
