6/30 – Payton’s Friday Evening Forecast

We are ending the month as the wettest June on record. The previous record set back in 2003 was replaced today as the Gulfport/Biloxi International Airport reported 22 inches of rain has fallen since June 1st. After a very wet and stormy day yesterday, conditions improved today with isolated showers and thunderstorms across the area. The low pressure that was overhead yesterday moved off to the northeast and was absorbed into the high pressure. This high pressure will be on the move and expanding toward South Mississippi. This will bring more typical summer time showers and thunderstorms into the area. Rain chances drop to around 30% each day for the next week. The best chance for these storms will be in the afternoon when we get daytime heating. There will be plenty of moisture in the area, so it is going to be very hot and humid heading into July. Heat index values will be the biggest concern this weekend and into next week with temperatures running in the lower 90s but feeling like the upper 90s to lower 100s. Make sure you have plenty of shade and water for any July 4th celebrations. No tropical development is expected over the next five days.
