Wednesday, July 9 Forecast Discussion

Clouds and rain have been the story today with some of us seeing heavy amounts of rain in a short amount of time. The cold front responsible for the rain is still in North Mississippi and North Alabama. This front is a very slow mover, and will not clear the viewing area until Thursday evening, meaning rain showers will be around this evening, overnight, and through our Thursday as well.

The resultant clouds and rain will keep temperatures down again tomorrow into the lower and middle 80s. Once the front clears, clouds will start to thin out from north to south as some drier air above the surface arrives.

High pressure starts to build in from the west on Friday, which will allow temperatures to warm back into the lower 90s for Friday and limit rain chances to just a pop-up storm. High pressure will be increasing in intensity over us for the weekend, suppressing rain chances and warming us back into the middle and upper 90s.

As quickly as our high pressure ridge builds, it will collapse as we start the new work week. Rain chances increase to isolated showers and storms on Monday and Tuesday with scattered storms on Wednesday as another trough approaches from the north.
