Unsettled Pattern to Return, Persist Through Next Week

A cold front is going to drop down into the north/central Gulf Coast tonight into tomorrow. It is expected to stall out/decay. This will result in a very unsettled weather pattern and multiple rounds storms and heavy rain across the Southeast through next week.

Rainfall accumulations of 4 – 8″ are expected from southeast Louisiana into southern Mississippi and Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle. Considering how wet it has been over the past month or so in these areas, excluding the past few days, there could be some flooding issues.

It is also worth noting that some model guidance, specifically the ECMWF and UKMET, develop a weak surface low Tuesday/Wednesday near the coast somewhere between southeast Louisiana and the western Florida Panhandle in association with the cold front. Tropical development is unlikely at this time, but it will be something worth monitoring.
