Ryan’s “Grey Skies, Few Showers” Tuesday Night Forecast
Update: no significant change to intensity or timing yet. Rainfall estimates have fluctuated some, as high as 2.5″ and as low as 1.75″ for Gulfport.
Not much more than just grey skies to this point, but more showers are expected tonight. That’s all we’ll see tonight, just showers, but potentially severe thunderstorms move in quickly tomorrow afternoon. Currently, the SPC has South MS under a “slight” risk, level two of five, and Flash Flood Watches are in effect.
WHILE HAIL AND TORNADOES ARE POSSIBLE, IT’S LIKELY THE MOST SIGNIFICANT THREAT WILL BE HEAVY RAIN.
Guidance is suggesting a minimum of two inches across the Coast, with nearby inland areas as high as four inches. Couple this with wet ground (from today’s showers) and runoff from the North, and flooding issues are likely. The most likely time for dangerous weather will be between 3 PM tomorrow and 9 AM Thursday, so be sure to remain especially “weather aware” during this time.
