Forecast Discussion: Saturday-Tuesday: Saturday will be similar to most days the past couple of weeks with a southerly flow ushering in a moist air mass with scattered showers and storms throughout the day. Subtropical Storm Alberto, which is expected to become a tropical storm, will move into the northern Gulf on Sunday. Alberto plus an already moist air mass in place will mean another day of scattered showers and storms on Sunday. Alberto will make landfall on the central Gulf coastline on Monday and will slowly move northward through Mississippi on Monday and Tuesday as a depression. Rain bands on the eastern side of the storm are expected to move through the area on both of those days. The very wet forecast over the holiday weekend will mean that air quality is expected to be in the green range for PM2.5 and Ozone through Tuesday. ML
