8/15 – Rob’s Mid-Week/Month Morning Forecast
Today will be a transition day as deeper moisture will slowly moves back into the area. This gets a better kick overnight into Thursday which will enhance the numbers of showers/t-storms around the area through the remainder of the week bringing the area back to a more normal showers/t-storms count.
The heat will still be there outside cooling rains but should not be as hot with deeper moisture and more shade from cloud cover. Thunderstorms will not have much in the way of motion today or Thursday. And highest probabilities will be near and southwest of Hancock county and over coastal Mississippi.
These showers/t-storms could spend their life cycle over the area they develop while producing some heavy rainfall. This could lead to some localized flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas which would include roadways. Strong winds of 30+mph will be possible with storms mainly in SE Louisiana. Downburst numbers are now coming in a little higher for Thursday so there will be the possibility of an isolated severe thunderstorm today but more so on Thursday.
The only other feature of interest is a cold front that may visit by mid to late next week. But discussing any individual variables associated will have to wait until after this weekend.
