Monday, June 23 Forecast Discussion

Showers and storms have been slowly rolling through East Mississippi this afternoon trekking towards West Alabama as storms are slow movers thanks to a lack of upper level support to push them quickly eastward. More showers behind this main band will mean some lingering showers into the overnight. We will repeat today for our Tuesday with sun and clouds and more showers and storms working across the area. Any storm could get a little strong with gusty winds and small hail, and may even touch severe criteria for a moment, but no major severe weather is forecast.

The trend continues for Wednesday and Thursday as well as pieces of upper level energy will move through the area, touching off showers and storms as they pass. The increased cloud cover and rain will keep highs below 90 for virtually everyone until Friday when skies will start to clear just a bit.

High pressure aloft will begin its return Friday, starting to taper rain chances and increasing high temperatures. As of now, this area of high pressure building in from the northern Gulf of Mexico does not look to gain a solid footing over us until Sunday/Monday, meaning pop-up storms will be possible into next week. This area of high pressure has the potential to bring the warmest air of the season into East Mississippi and West Alabama as we move into the start of July.
