Storms coming in this morning and heat will continue

By: JohnnyParker, 2:45 PM GMT on June 28, 2011

The current temperature is 84, but it feels like 91. There is a severe thunderstorm watch that is in effect for North MS until 12pm today. There is a line of storms this morning that will be pushing through around 12 or 1pm. Main threats will this line will be large hail and damaging winds. Secondary threats will be heavy rain and flash flooding. Todays high is 92 and a low of 70 with a 50% chance of scattered strong storms. Your highs will continue to range between 92 and 99 with lows between 66 and 73. Next chance of rain and storms will not come in until next week. Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, our low pressure area in the Bay of Campeche is showing good signs of organizing. The National Hurricane Center is now giving this area a 50% chance of developing. The Hurricane Hunters are scheduled to fly into this area this afternoon, if necessary. The main areas that this will be impacting are Mexico and Southern Texas. I do not believe that this will become a hurricane. It may just be a tropical depression or weak tropical storm when it makes landfall. In the Eastern Pacific, nothing is predicted to develop over the next couple of days. Hope yall have a good day and I'll have another update tomorrow. Continue to pray for the tornado victims, Japan, and Minot, North Dakota as they deal with the flooding.

Sunny and hot weather makes a comeback, little rain chances in the forecast

By: JohnnyParker, 5:05 PM GMT on June 25, 2011

The current temperature is 86, but it feels like 94. Todays high is 87 with a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms. Some storms could be severe with large hail and damaging winds being the main threats. Secondary threats with the storms will be heavy rainfall and flash flooding. Tonights low is 70 with a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms. Your highs will continue to range between 87 and 95 with lows between 70 and 73. On Sunday, there is a slight chance for isolated thunderstorms. Some storms again could be severe with damaging winds and large hail as the main threats. Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, there is nothing that we are watching for possible development. Computer models still continue to predict something forming in the Southern Gulf of Mexico sometime this week. If something does form, the two places that it would have any effect from it would be Mexico and the Southern part of Texas. In the Eastern Pacific, there is nothing that is being monitored for possible development. We will continue to monitor both the Atlantic and the Eastern Pacific for possible development over the next couple of days. Hope everyone is having a great Saturday and I'll have a new post tomorrow. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and for Japan.

Still hot, but rain will be coming in Friday through Sunday

By: JohnnyParker, 2:31 PM GMT on June 23, 2011

The current temperature is 79 and it feels like 82. Todays high is 89 with a 20% chance of isolated thunderstorms. Highs will range between 87 and 96 with lows between 68 and 73. Rain chances Friday through Sunday will range between 30% and 60%. Today, most of the rain will be mainly to the South of us. Early Friday morning, there is some potential for a large complex of strong to severe thunderstorms to roll down from the Northwest and affect areas of North MS and then on down to South MS. Very heavy rain and flash flooding will be possible with this. The main severe weather threat will be damaging winds and the secondary threat will be large hail. Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, there is nothing that we are watching for possible development. Although, we may have to be watching for possible development as we get into next week.

A few isolated thunderstorms are possible through Sunday and into next week. A few of the storms may reach severe limits. The main threat will be wind. There could be some hail with storms, too. The next rain chance could be somewhat beneficial. There is a 60% chance of scattered thunderstorms for next Friday. Hopefully, this forecast will not change.

Not much rain and still staying hot, not much happening in the Atlantic

By: JohnnyParker, 1:18 PM GMT on June 08, 2011

The current temperature is 75 and it feels like 75. The high today is 96 and tonights low is 69. There will be chances of isolated thunderstorms today through Sunday across Mississippi and other places across the South. Some storms could be strong to severe with the main threats being small hail and damaging winds. Better rain chances are in the forecast for next Wednesday through Friday. Hopefully, this will not change. Your highs will continue to range between 89 and 99 with lows between 69 and 71. Now, for your tropical update. The low in the Caribbean Sea will not develop and has a 0% chance of developing. As of now, there are no more areas in the Atlantic to be concerned about. In the Eastern Pacific, we now have 60mph tropical storm Adrian. It is forecasted to become the first hurricane of the season and strengthen into a 105mph category 2 storm by the end of this week. The path of this will take it to the south of Mexico, so no landfall from this is expected. The threats from this for the Mexican Coastline are heavy rain, some wind, and high waves. The storm could be so far away from the coast that they will not see any of this. It is suppose to reach hurricane status by either tonight or by tomorrow. Hope everyone is having a good Wednesday and I'll have a new post tomorrow. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and for Japan as they rebuild from the earthquake back in March.

Warm weather continues across the South, not much rain in the forecast

By: JohnnyParker, 4:41 PM GMT on June 07, 2011

The current temperature is 87 and it feels like 90. There is a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms today across Mississippi and maybe other parts of the South as well. A few storms may be strong to severe with the main threats being small hail and damaging winds between 40 and 60mph. Your highs will continue to range between 94 and 99 with lows between 70 and 71. Better rain chances come in next week if the forecast does not change by then. Now, for your tropical update. Our area of low pressure in the Caribbean Sea is not doing too good. It has became less organize and upper-level winds are becoming unfavorable. The National Hurricane Center is now giving this a 20% chance of developing. As of right now, I see no threat in this becoming anything. Most of the computer models take the area of low pressure into the Gulf of Mexico. We will continue to monitor this area, but development is becoming less likely. In the Eastern Pacific, we have our first depression of the season. Tropical depression #1-E has formed and could become the first hurricane of the season has well. It is expected to become tropical storm Adrian by Wednesday. The path of this takes it close to the Mexican Coastline. I believe that the main impacts from this will be wind, rough waves, and heavy rain. We will continue to monitor both the low pressure in the Caribbean and our new storm in the Eastern Pacific. Hope everyone is having a great Tuesday and I'll have a new post tomorrow. Continue to pray for both the tornado victims and for Japan.

Still hot across the South, not much rain in the forecast anytime soon

By: JohnnyParker, 5:40 PM GMT on June 06, 2011

The current temperature is 88 and it feels like 89. Heat indicies will range between 100 and 105. Heat advisory has been discontinued for the time being. Highs will continue to range between 92 and 99 with lows ranging between 70 and 71. There will be a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms tomorrow across Mississippi. Some storms could be strong to severe, but nothing major or significant. Main threat will be small hail and winds between 40 and 60mph. Other storms could pop up across the South, too. Otherwise, it is still going to be hot and humid. Now, for your tropical update. Our low pressure in the Caribbean Sea has not had much of a increase in thunderstorm activity this morning. The National Hurricane Center is still giving this a 40% chance of developing. Most of the computer models are taking it into the Gulf of Mexico. The hurricane hunters are going to fly into the low pressure system tomorrow afternoon, if necessary. Whether this thing develops or not remains the question. With wind shear dropping and upper-level winds favorable, it appears that it could. One thing that is interfering with development of the low pressure area is dry air. As for the Eastern Pacific, there is an area of low pressure that could soon become the first storm of the season. The National Hurricane Center is giving this a 90% chance of developing. The low pressure has gotten well defined and thunderstorms continue to blossom around it. I would suspect that it will become a depression or storm by later today or tomorrow. These two areas will continue to monitored for possible development. I hope everyone is having a good Monday and I'll have a new post tomorrow. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and Japan.

90+ degree heat continues over the South, not much rain in the forecast

By: JohnnyParker, 7:50 PM GMT on June 05, 2011

The current temperature is 96 and feels like 99. Heat advisory still in effect until 10pm Monday night. Heat indicies will be between 100 to 105. This heat advisory could be extended through most of next week. Highs will continue to range between 93 and 100 with lows between 70 and 72. There will not be much rain in the forecast and what we get will not be much. Now, for what is happening in the tropical Atlantic. We are still watching the area of low pressure in the Central Caribbean Sea. The National Hurricane Center is now giving a 40% chance of this developing. Thunderstorm activity has become a little bit better organize with the low pressure system. Several of the computer models are now taking it into the Gulf of Mexico. Of course, these models could change later on. It is hard to tell which path it will be taking since it is not moving very much. We will continue to watch this area over the next couple of days. As for the Eastern Pacific, there is also a broad low pressure area that is showing signs of organization. As of now, the National Hurricane Center is giving this a 60% chance of developing as it is over a favorable area for development. We will continue to watch this area, too. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday and I'll have a new post tomorrow. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and for Japan.

Sunny and very hot temperatures continue throughout next week

By: JohnnyParker, 7:42 PM GMT on June 04, 2011

The current temperature is 95. A heat advisory is now in effect until 10pm Monday night. This advisory could be extended further as we get into next week. Your highs will continue to range between 96 to near 100 with lows between 71 and 72. Heat indicies will be between 105 to near 110. Little to no rain is in the forecast. This is all because of a big high pressue system that is over the South and it is forcing all the rain to go far to our North. The high is forecasted to move over toward Texas very slowly next week. Hopefully, we will get some beneficial rains across the South soon. As for the tropics, we are watching the same low pressure area in the Central and Western Caribbean Sea. Right now, the National Hurricane Center is giving this area a 30% chance of developing. The upper-level winds are becoming more conducive, but dry air is hampering thunderstorm activity at this time. It is something that we will have to keep a eye on. This low pressure system is not moving much, so we will have a long time to watch this. I hope everyone is having a good Saturday and I'll have another post tomorrow. Continue to pray for the tornado victims.

The heat continues to dominate over the South with little rain in the forecast

By: JohnnyParker, 5:24 PM GMT on June 03, 2011

The current temperature is 91. The heat will continue for most of next week. High temperatures will be ranging in between 93 and 100 with lows between 67 and 73. Heat indexs will range between 105 and 110. Heat advisories have already been issued for much of the South due to the extreme heat. There is rain in the forecast for next Wednesday and Thursday. It is only a 30% chance, so probably not much. No severe weather is anticipated over the next couple of days. As for the Atlantic, there are two areas that we are watching for possible development. The first one is a low pressure area in the Gulf of Mexico. There is too much wind shear for it to develop into anything. In fact, the National Hurricane Center is giving this a 0% chance of developing. So, it is highly unlikely to develop. The low pressure area will move into South Texas and Northern Mexico at some point in the coming days. The second area that I am more concerned about is in the Western Caribbean Sea. As of right now, the National Hurricane Center is giving this area a 10% chance of developing. Over the next couple of days, wind shear will drop and it will be able to get better organized. I hope everyone is having a great Friday and I'll be back tomorrow with a new post. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and Japan.

Heat Continues across the South and the Atlantic is getting active

By: JohnnyParker, 6:25 PM GMT on June 02, 2011

The heat continues across much of the South. Highs will range between 95 and 100 with lows between 69 and 73. Heat indexs will be between 105 and 110. It will be humid, too. A heat advisory may be needed across some parts of the South at some point. This heat will continue into most of next week. Today marks the second day of the 2011 Hurricane Season and things are starting to get active. First off, the area of low pressure that went over Florida yesterday is now in the Gulf of Mexico. Its track over Florida disrupted the thunderstorms around the low pressure area and it is not expected to develop into anything. Now, the second area of concern, is in the Central and Western Caribbean Sea. The National Hurricane Center is giving this low pressure area a 20% chance of developing. So, that is what we are watching in the Atlantic. I hope yall are having a great Thursday and I will have a new update tomorrow. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and for Japan.

Still hot and sunny, 2011 Hurricane Season begins today

By: JohnnyParker, 6:24 PM GMT on June 01, 2011

It is hot and sunny again today. The current temperature is 90. These hot temperatures will continue through much of next week. Your highs will be ranging between 91 and 100 with lows between 66 and 73. I do not see any severe weather or rain over the next couple of days. The 2011 Hurricane Season begins today and we are already watching an area of low pressure (invest 93L) near Florida. The National Hurricane Center is giving this a 30% chance of becoming a depression. I do not believe that it will have a chance of becoming anything since it will be moving into Florida pretty soon. After it passes over Florida, its remnants or what is left of it, will move over into the Gulf of Mexico. At this time, I do not believe that it has a chance to develop over the Gulf unless it can maintain itself while moving over Florida. It also depends on how close it is to land when it gets in the Gulf. If it is further south from the Gulf Coast, then some development is possible. Other than that, there is nothing else in the Atlantic to watch out for. Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday and I'll have a new post tomorrow on any changes in the forecast. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and for Japan.
