6/19 – Payton’s Wednesday Afternoon Forecast
Another hot and humid one with a low low chance of a popup t-storm on the coast. For the inland counties we are watching a complex of t-storms in Louisiana and it will make a run at South Mississippi this evening. It appears much of the line will fall apart before reaching the area. There is a very low possibility a few t-storms hold together or redevelop, which could produce a few strong t-storms in the inland counties later today. The main concern would be for gusty winds.
A high pressure system is then expected to build over the area Friday through Sunday. Upper level convergence from this system will cause sinking air and stability in the atmosphere. There is still a high moisture presence and lifting in the environment through the weekend, however. Consequently, a shower or two is still possible during the daytime heating hours this weekend, especially Friday. At the beginning of next week, a weak upper level trough will build over our area again, and the chance of showers will increase slightly as atmospheric stability decreases from this system. A few showers and a possible thunderstorm are expected Monday through Tuesday.
TROPICS: No tropical development is expected over the next five days.
