7/15 – The Chief’s “Weekend Look Ahead” Afternoon Forecasts
[videoembed][/videoembed]This afternoon though the weekend, south Mississippi will be in the middle of lower moisture to the east, higher moisture to the west. Convection in the onshore flow should remain isolated to scattered, with the best coverage over the western half of the area. Most convection should die out around sunset. As we get into Friday, the high-pressure to the east weakens and moisture levels will increase. This is likely to produce more numerous showers and storm than what we see today.
The extender forecast through the weekend will bring little change from what we’ve been seeing locally for the last few months, and especially over the last couple weeks. Expect convection to begin within a few hours of sunrise along coastal areas with coverage increasing and spreading north with time. This wet pattern, maybe not to the same degree of intensity a boundary approached to the NW washes out Tuesday into Wednesday.
