Tuesday, July 22 Forecast Discussion

Clouds have been fluctuating between mostly cloudy and overcast throughout our Tuesday thanks to an upper level low continuing to slide to the west. The low is centered between Hattiesburg and Lucedale this afternoon and will keep moving west through the evening and overnight. Most of the showers and storms so far today have been south of Interstate 20, with all rain coming to an end after sunset once we lose day time heating.

Rain and storms will again be possible tomorrow, but the best chance of rain will slide to our west leaving us with only an isolated shot at rain. A better chance, and the best of the next seven days, arrives Thursday as a cold front slides through the area. This front will touch off showers and storms through the day, especially in the afternoon, and be to our south by the start of Friday.

Friday and Saturday look to be the nicest stretch in the next seven as highs will return to the lower 90s but rain chances will be reduced to only pop-up chances as an area of high pressure attempts to take back control.

High pressure will weaken over us starting on Sunday, allowing isolated rain chances Sunday and scattered rain chances on Monday as a cold front slides through. Just like earlier this month, another blast of unseasonably cool air looks poised to return to the area for the end of the month as highs may get knocked back down to at least the middle 80s for the middle of next week.

Elsewhere, the tropics are active with Tropical Depression Two in the eastern Atlantic. It is forecast to weaken as it approaches the Lesser Antilles over the next couple of days. If you have any plans towards Puerto Rico, you should monitor this storm. For full details on T.D. Two, visit the hurricane page on our web channel at wtok.com/weather/hurricane.
