Thursday, July 4 Forecast Discussion

A few showers and even some storms out there this afternoon as our upper level low continues to cause some rain over top of us this Independence Day. We have seen an increase in rain coverage the last couple of hours, and that will be the case until about sunset when we will start to see the rain taper off a bit. It looks like most of us will remain dry, but those of you between Highway 45 and Highway 17, basically right along the Mississippi/Alabama state line, will have the best shot of rain lingering. There should be enough breaks to get the fireworks off tonight at Bonita, but rain will be in the vicinity.

Rain will pick up in coverage and intensity on Friday as the jet stream aligns itself over us, which will cause plenty of rain and even a few rumbles of thunder. The same set up holds true for our Saturday before this low starts to move away with Sunday being our last good shot at rain.

Rain will linger through Tuesday before high pressure builds in and should put an end to the rain and start to warm us back up to seasonal readings as we approach the end of next week.
