Today we take a look at what’s happening along the Gulf Coast in Mississippi. Are there tropical systems out there looking to taint our midweek plains??
At 1149pm CDT, the temperature at Gulfport, MS was 82 degrees under fair skies. There’s a hurricane out in the Atlantic Basin (Gert), but it’s between the Carolinas and Bermuda and will be heading north-northeast over the next couple of days. The Gulf of Mexico looks void of any tropical threats throughout the week, so the only real threat we have is airmass thunderstorms. Overall, broad high pressure is found throughout the Southeast US, but not strong enough to quell the daily cycle of diurnal thunderstorms that pop up each summer afternoon in the region. Odds are only one of the two days we’ll see some storms, but which day that is… well, actually Wednesday looks to be a bit quieter than Tuesday. In any event, keep an eye on the sky both days.
