2PM THUR 6/2/2010 Pleasant weather is more so likely in store for this region today! That is the case at least in the early parts of the day. Warm temperatures are likely in the area, and afternoon thunderstorms are going to follow. Temperatures around the region are currently in the mid to upper 80's with nice weather in most parts. However, thunderstorms are beginning to develop in the southern parts of the zone and are heading north into unstable areas. The storms should continue to pop up and become more widespread as the afternoon grows on. If severe weather breaks, check the Severe Storm Center for up to the minute updates from forecaster Jason M. Forecaster Ryan

4:40 PM WED 5/23/2010 Sorry for the delay, but the zone operation has been the topic of discussion for the past few days. I forecaster Ryan, will operate the zone until someone is brought on to run this area. The weather for the late afternoon and early evening today looks to be partly cloudy, with isolated thunderstorms possible throughout the area. The storms could be strong, but will be pulse like storms set off by instability if they develop. The storms will likely diminish after sunset due to the lack of instability from daytime heating. Lows tonight should be anywhere between 63-67 throughout the area from northern sections right down to the coast. As for the day on Thursday, the area looks to be mainly sunny, with highs near the 90 degree mark and only the slightest chance for precipitation. If anything pops up in the forecast, I'll be sure to keep you posted.

This being next in line for forecasting coverage, we decided it was time to launch forth! Currently the team is seeking to recruit a highly regarded forecaster to lead and collaborate with others in covering the Alabama-Mississippi region. This zone is a key area as it borders the Gulf of Mexico and is vulnerable to tropical cyclone activity during the Atlantic Hurricane Season. Here are the forecasts for some selected regions around the dual-state area.

OIL WATCH It has been reported that the oil is washing up along the shores of the Gulf Coast. The spill has only been minimally contained and the coverage of the oil is spreading throughout the Gulf of Mexico into the loop current. Although the current impacts are mainly on Louisiana beaches, soon AL and MS beaches could be affected.
