Chilly temperatures this morning have led to a frosty start for most commuters. Roads remain dry, but be mindful of area bridges. No ice has been detected this far south in Mississippi and these morning temperatures will be warming up the next few days from below average to above average numbers... (44º should be our low).
Today: Sunshine will keep the South Mississippi scenery looking good the next few days as the ruling weather maker will be a high pressure system. This pattern will keep things dry for most of this week. High temperature this afternoon will be near the 60º mark (we should be 62º). A light to calm wind from the N/NE will also be felt.
Tonight: Mostly clear sky, calm wind speeds and a bright moon. Low temperatures will fall back into the 30's again, so prepare for another chilly morning Tuesday.
Tues-Wed: High pressure system will keep conditions on the dry side and with the cold starts expected, skin lotion may be the order of the day for some of you. Static electricity is fun, but please, as a courtesy to your siblings and significant others ... try to release the energy before any contact this week.
Late This Week: The high pressure system will shift eastward and as a result our wind direction will begin an onshore pattern. This will increase the humidity levels so achy joints will be the first to respond. Clouds will also filter in at the upper levels of the atmosphere while at the surface the temperatures will be topping out almost ten degrees above the norm for this time of the year. With the increase in moisture and a few passing waves of energy, the chance for rain showers will begin to increase for next weekend with the expectation that rain showers should be more widespread toward Sunday/Monday. That should (at this time) set up a post frontal pattern for Christmas... Cold clear and dry.
