Moisture from Tropical Disturbance 91-L Could Bring Rainfall to South Mississippi
It was a hot and humid weekend with some showers and t-storms. The heat and humidity will continue as we head into the workweek. Monday’s highs will climb into the lower to mid 90s with heat index values near 100. Tuesday will be similar with no rain. By Wednesday our pattern changes and we could see a few showers and t-storms. Our attention then turns to the disturbance in the Bay of Campeche. It’s still very unorganized, but could still gradually develop over the next few days as it drifts northwest. We aren’t expecting a direct impact along the Central Gulf Coast, but we could see some of the moisture from the system bump up our rain chances and cloud cover going into Thursday and Friday. This will also allow temperatures to cool slightly. At the moment it appears the heaviest rain could fall north of South Mississippi. Right now too much of a concern in our immediate area, but areas to the north and in the Mississippi River watershed could pick up a decent amount of rain this week. Of course with flooding continuing along the Mississippi River this is the last thing we need. It’s too soon to know how this affect the river and Bonnet Carre Spillway, but it’ll be something to watch.
