9/24 – Payton’s Sunday Night Forecast
It was another warm and humid day with showers and thunderstorms. This trend is going to continue for the beginning of the week as an upper level low sits in off of the Florida Panhandle. It will continue to give rain chances going into Monday with showers and thunderstorms possible during the morning hours along the coast, and better chances inland as we go throughout the afternoon. The upper level low will weaken going into Tuesday and Wednesday, and that means decreasing rain chances. It will be hot for most of the week with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Toward the end of the week and into the weekend a cold front could push through the area bringing somewhat cooler temperatures and drier air. There are still some questions with how far south the front will push, but we will have a better understanding as we go throughout the next few days.
The tropics are still quiet for South Mississippi, but Hurricane Maria continues to move off to the north and could bring tropical storm conditions to the North Carolina Coast. Hurricane Lee came back from the dead, but will stay far out into the Atlantic.
