7/13 – Rob’s “Hot & Humid” Afternoon Forecast

This afternoon will bring a few showers/air mass t-storms to south Mississippi. The good news is we are not anticipating AS widespread coverage as the previous few days, but an enhancement of typical summertime coverage will persist. Also any airmass thunderstorm development will not move much at all today and could drop locally heavy rainfall with intense rainfall rates.

All convection eventually dissipates likely ending across northern areas late this evening/early tonight. No major changes going into early Wednesday morning with the same nocturnal marine convection possible once again. A few strong storms with gusty downdraft winds will remain the main threats, as well as locally heavy rainfall leading to some isolated flash flooding due to continued slow mean storm motion. There’s really no indication that the local area will see a pattern change any time soon. Upper high-pressure over the Rockies and western Atlantic Ocean will continue to be the main players during the extended forecast period. Moisture levels will certainly remain sufficient to support thunderstorm development with a moist southeasterly flow remaining in place over the central Gulf Coast region.
