Thursday, June 6 Forecast Discussion

Showers and storms have already started to develop back to western portions of the viewing area and we will see storms continuing to move east and northeastward through the afternoon and evening hours. No watches are currently in effect, but we could see a severe thunderstorm watch later for some counties north of I-20. Rain will continue to arrive with most of us, especially in East Mississippi, seeing showers and storms by 5pm and then by 6pm for West Alabama.

Storms will taper off through the evening with some lingering showers lasting into the overnight. Rain then looks to return tomorrow as an area of low pressure develops along the coast, sending rain our direction with a storm or two. Pop-up chances then look to remain in place through our Monday.

Once we hit Tuesday, high pressure starts to reassert its control over us and we dry out and warm into the low to mid 90s for the middle portion of next week.

Tropical Storm Andrea will make landfall in the next couple of hours and continue to move to the northeast and pick up speed as it does so. Our only impact will be much cooler weather for Friday.
