  • Confirmed EF-2 Tornado Damage-Monroe, LA

    While our target areas were mainly within the North Louisiana and Western portions of Mississippi we found ourselves well into Louisiana where we knew we would meet up with a strong squall line. That squall line would produce an EF-2 tornado that tracked through West Monroe, LA leaving a path of damage along with a(…)

Tuesday Severe Risk

*FORECAST UPDATE*-

we have updated our post with the latest graphic from the NWS Jackson concerning the potential for severe weather Monday Night then again Tuesday. Not much has changed concerning strength and modes of severe weather that will be of concern. The Storm Prediction Center has nudged the marginal risk area for Monday Night a little further Northward and Tuesdays forecast is currently on track. We should have a better idea by tomorrow in the way of confidence in Tuesdays forecast. We will be preparing to be out in the field chasing potentially Monday Night then again Tuesday should conditions warrant a storm chase. 

A limited risk for severe weather exists Monday Night then again Tuesday. We will have two opportunities of experiencing severe weather. Showers and thunderstorms will begin to develop Monday afternoon and evening ahead of a low pressure disturbance strengthening just to our west. Before sunrise Tuesday strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible capable of producing hail and damaging winds. Below is the Storm Prediction Centers marginal risk for severe weather for Monday.

As we go throughout the day Tuesday conditions will have to be monitored along the Gulf Coast. If showers and thunderstorms develop ahead of the main system then they could actually inhibit severe weather potential throughout much of the state. Should those showers not form along the coast then we could be looking at better destabilization of the atmosphere and a better environment for storms to form. A Slight Risk has been introduced for much of Central and South Mississippi. Damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes will be possible. According the NWS in Jackson the next 24 hours of numerical weather models should give us a better idea of what to expect Tuesday and whether or not anything will inhibit or intensify our severe weather risk.

Scattered Showers Possible Monday

Well as you may have guessed with these warmer temperatures comes more chances for rain. The good news is that only slight chances will remain. Overnight tonight into Monday a cold front will surge into areas of North Mississippi bringing light showers along with it. Throughout the day Monday much of the Delta and North Mississippi regions will start to expect cloudy conditions with on-and-off showers while areas south of the front will experience much warmer weather. Especially with above average temperatures expected to remain in the upper 60’s and even the mid 70’s again for Monday. Rain chances will last from Monday into Tuesday as scattered showers will be likely

Day 2 Precipitation Forecast

 

Monday Night temperatures will continue to cool even more across Mississippi as the front makes its way southward. Lows are expected to drop into the mid 30s in North Mississippi while much of Central and South Mississippi will only drop into the 40’s and 50’s.

Pleasant Fall Weekend Ahead

Well for those of you that like the quiet cool weather you are in for a treat this weekend. The leaves are slowly falling off the trees and our temperatures are getting a little cooler as we make our way further into the fall season! High pressure continues to shift off to the East with warmer temperatures expected to surge into the region throughout much of the weekend. Friday night football play off games will be a little on the cool side with temperatures in the 30-40’s.

low tonightSaturday High

Saturday will be a very comfortable day with temperatures in the upper 60s and 70’s with slightly breezy conditions across much of the state. Sunday will be much of the same with a few scattered showers in the forecast for Monday. Otherwise expect a pretty quiet period weather-wise.

Bitterly Cold Temperatures Overnight


UntitledAfter a very rainy end to our weekend temperatures are going to stay unseasonably cool especially through Tomorrow. Expect a very breezy northwest wind throughout the day with high temperatures only topping out around 40 to the mid 40s in some spots. Overnight is where the real chill factor will kick in. Lows are expected to drop into the low 20’s and even the teens in some areas(mainly North Mississippi).

Heavy Rain and Thunderstorms Today/Tonight-Coldest Temperatures This Season Tuesday Morning

A frontal system pushing through will continue to intensify throughout the day. There is the potential for severe thunderstorms in south Mississippi. The Storm Prediction Center has highlighted this area in the “Slight Risk” area below. Damaging winds and maybe a tornado or two cannot be ruled out. Untitled

Due to a slow moving frontal boundary much of the state will receive pretty substantial amounts of rainfall through Monday. Most forecast models are depicting generally 1-3 inches of rainfall with higher amounts in isolated areas. Flooding will also be of concern through the afternoon and overnight. Expect showers to slowly diminish from west to east before much colder air rushes into our area. Lows Monday night are forecast to drop to the lowest we’ve experienced this season. Portions of Northeast Mississippi are expected to drop into the teens early Tuesday morning.

Heavy Rain Expected Sunday

namSE_prec_precacc_057Starting Saturday Night scattered showers will gradually develop and move in from the west. As a low pressure centers over much of the lower Mississippi Valley rainfall/coverage will increase as we go into Sunday. With a few parameters showing signs of embedded thunderstorm potential, some areas could see decent rainfall totals within a short period of time. This boundary will be moving slow through the state with the peak of activity expect Sunday into Sunday Night. Current forecast calls for anywhere from 1-3 inches of rain although areas that experience training heavier rain bands could see locally higher amounts above 3 inches. Right now flooding does appear to be a concern but only for areas that experience those heavier rainfall rates.

UntitledThe Cold front will be clearing through the area Monday Morning and behind that will be more cool and dry air. Also expect some blustery conditions Monday to go along with those cooler temperatures. Due to snowcover expected in states north of Mississippi, that northwesterly wind will assist in filtering in that cold air bringing low temperatures Monday night into the low and mid 20s and even the teens in North Mississippi.

Rain Chances Rise Next Week

image8image9

Enjoy the nice cool and dry weather while it is here because our chances for rain look to increase by early next weekend. Fall like temperatures will persist through the weekend with highs in the 70’s to even the upper 80’s by Sunday and lows at night dropping into the mid 40’s and 50’s. Plentiful sunshine will be present through early next week before our next disturbance moves in.  A cold front will approach from the north Tuesday bringing showers ahead of it. Also areas of south Mississippi can expect showers associated with the amounts of gulf moisture surging inland. Another chance for rain will return again next Thursday but details are still skeptical so stay with us for updates but right now models are generally in agreement of some sort of disturbance moving through although the strength of this disturbance is still to far out to determine.
