9/15 – Payton’s Friday Afternoon Forecast

Showers and thunderstorms have started to develop late this morning across Jackson and Harrison County.  A much more typical summer day in store for South Mississippi as the cooler drier air is no longer around. This trend will continue into Saturday. The best chance for showers & thunderstorms will be over the Gulf of Mexico. As high pressure builds closer to the area the chance for showers and thunderstorms will go down as we head into the beginning of next week, but there is still a very slight chance of a storm during the afternoon hours.

The tropics continue to heat back up with Tropical Storm Jose moving off the East Coast this weekend into next week, and Tropical Depression 14 has formed off the coast of Africa. Right now this is no threat to anyone in the United States. Another area of thunderstorms has a high chance of tropical development over the next five days as it moves toward the Lesser Antilles. It’s currently not a threat to anyone, but we will keep a very close eye on this disturbance. Have a great weekend!
