Friday, June 13 Forecast Discussion

After rain worked through the area this morning, we are seeing a few showers and storms redeveloping this afternoon across East Mississippi and West Alabama. These showers and storms are along and just ahead of the cold front that is continuing to work through the area. It will push south of us this evening, leaving us with clear skies, cooler temperatures, and lower humidity. Fog will develop overnight, some of it thick, before it burns off tomorrow morning.

Saturday begins a series of days that will look very similar. High pressure will start to build in tomorrow at the surface and aloft, allowing winds to be light and temperatures to start warming back up. Saturday could be the last day of the next seven with highs below 90.

As the high continues to build over us into next week, temperatures will return to the lower 90s each day. With high pressure in place, we will reduce the risk of rain to just popcorn variety storms each afternoon, although most locations could stay dry the entire week.

The only wrinkle in the forecast is late next week as an upper level low will traverse the country to our north. As of now, aside from an increase in cloud cover, we should not see an tangible effects from this system. If, however, our high pressure does weaken, it could drift further south and mean more rain for us as we approach the first day of Summer. We will continue to monitor it closely.
