Thursday, July 18 Forecast Discussion

Showers and storms worked through the area early this morning dumping plenty of rain across the area. That rain appears, as of now, to have stabilized our atmosphere to prevent more rain from forming. A shower or storm cannot be ruled out through the evening, but widespread rain chances are slim. The rain this morning was thanks to a cold pool of air aloft that caused rain back in Georgia last night and arrived this morning. It is currently crossing into the Arkansas Delta and is no longer a problem for us.

An upper level low is still present in the northern Gulf, and that will move onshore tomorrow and be with us through Sunday. This low will aid in causing uplift for the moisture in place to see more in the way of showers and storms tomorrow and plenty of rain and storms on Saturday and Sunday as it exits the area.

Once this low exits, high pressure will start to build in from the west. This area of high pressure will also bring in much warmer air that will arrive starting on Tuesday. This will send our highs back into the mid 90s as we start to close out next week. High pressure will limit rain chances, but anytime we get that hot with any moisture present, a shower or storm could develop in the afternoon.
