Thursday, August 22 Forecast Discussion

High pressure has started to build in towards the area, and that has drastically reduced our cloud cover and limited rain shower development so far today. Highs have touched 90 already at Key Field and NAS Meridian. Temperatures will continue the upward trend into the first part of the weekend.

With high pressure building in, it will be a lot harder for showers to form. However, a very small rain chance cannot be ruled out as we start the weekend as an area of low pressure is trying to organize in the Gulf of Mexico just south of Panama City. While this system is not expected to develop into anything, it could send some showers and storms our direction, especially for locations south of I-20. We will watch this, but again the rain chance is so low that I will leave that out of the official forecast.

Highs will climb to the mid 90s for Saturday before we back off to the low 90s into the start of next week as some cooler air wraps around our area of high pressure. This will be short lived as highs return to the mid 90s by next Wednesday as warmer air begins to arrive from our west.
