5/3 – Jeff Vorick’s “Mild & Dry Conditions” Wednesday Evening Forecast

Splendid conditions continued for the area today with warm temperatures, low humidity content, and a light breeze. Expect a few clouds tonight and temperatures to dip into the 50s on average. As we move into Thursday, changes to our weather pattern will be on tap. A system to our west will begin to move into the picture. While it will track well northwest of the area, the combination of its warm front and shifting high pressure will bring changes to the airmass.

More humidity begins to work in tomorrow afternoon and evening. Southerly flow returns to the area helping to create a muggier feel. Clouds will also be on the increase late Thursday. Rain chances won’t increase until Friday. The pattern will be conducive for showers and thunderstorms to fire off with daytime heating once moisture recovers. We will see 30% chances of rainfall Friday afternoon across South Mississippi.

The best chances of rain will come Saturday. There is the potential for a complex of showers and thunderstorms to fire west of here then track into the area Saturday. From Sunday on, expect afternoon pop-up thunderstorms to become part of the routine. Also, muggy starts and very warm afternoons become reality.
