8/24 – Brittany’s “Very Saturated” Wednesday Afternoon Forecast

A stalled surface low and trough north of the coast will keep a higher risk of showers and thunderstorms in place through Friday. The low should slowly dissipate through Friday, and a broad ridge of high pressure will extend back over the coastal waters from the eastern Gulf over the weekend.

Abundant moisture and ample instability in place this morning across SELA and S MS set provided the setup to support sustainability for a cluster of showers and storms to pass east across the area this afternoon.

Moving into Thursday, there`s really not much change expected at the surface or aloft. Thus, another round of showers and thunderstorms can be expected. GFS and the HRRR suggest convective initiation starts early west of I-55, then spreads east throughout the day.
