It has been a mixed bag today. We have had sun, clouds, showers and thunderstorms today. We have had a lot of rain in the past 24 hours in South Mississippi. Highest amount have been in the four to six inch range. Here lies the potential problem; because we’ve had so much rain, more rain will add to our flooding and flash flooding potential. We do have a marginal risk (1 out of 5) for strong to severe storms which could include: flooding rain, hail, and gusty winds will be possible. Once the front moves away from the area, a drier pattern is expected to settle in over the weekend. Slightly lower humidity and cooler mornings. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is predicting an above-normal Atlantic Hurricane Season for this year. They say that it will likely be an above-normal amount of storms due to an ongoing La Nina pattern as well as warmer than normal sea surface temperatures.
Turning hotter than the last few days with typical July heat in store. A wetter pattern still possible by Sunday thanks to a front approaching from the north. Click and watch the forecast video for details.
