.DISCUSSION...
Have updated the forecast to increase the areal coverage of the
chance for showers and thunderstorms. A few isolated showers
popping up on radar this morning and expect more to develop during
the rest of the day and linger into the early evening. Water
vapor and satellite loops indicated the upper ridge of high
pressure centered over South Mississippi late this morning and
surface high pressure centered almost the same location over the
Mississippi River near Vicksburg. Hot and humid conditions will
continue through the weekend with afternoon heat index values
nearing the heat advisory criteria for sunday and Monday for some
areas will most likely issue on for this afternoon package.
Surface and upper-level ridge to persist through the remainder of
the weekend. /06/
