Saturday 7/13 Forecast Discussion

Yesterday was very comfortable and dry, as dry air shot into the region behind the cold front that brought showers and thunderstorms Thursday morning, but as is common in summer, that dry air didn't stay here long, as moisture from the Gulf has started to stream Northward today. It was very muggy out there this afternoon, and we are seeing some showers and thunderstorms over the Southern part of the viewing area in Clarke and Wayne, and Choctaw Counties. Much more widespread rain is over Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida. All of that moisture is going to continue moving to the Northwest, so we are looking at pretty good chances for scattered to numerous showers and storms tomorrow, mainly during the afternoon hours. A couple of those could be a little on the strong side, so we'll keep an eye on them...good news is that widespread severe weather is NOT anticipated. After this system (that's moving "backwards" from the East to the West) clears us, we return to a very typical summertime pattern. Next week each day will feature a high in the low to mid 90s, with a slight chance of an afternoon shower...no organized rain or storm makers are anticipated. Keep the umbrella handy tomorrow, and enjoy the pool the rest of the week!
