01/06 Ryan’s “Early Activity” Wednesday Night Forecast
Going to see some early activity moving in as a late night front pushes into South MS. Up until this point, this system didn’t have much of a chance of severe weather, but a “marginal” risk has inched onto the coastline. This risk is picking up on the potential for gusting winds as it passes, with around a 2% chance of a “spin-up” tornado.
The leading edge of this system will arrive in Hancock county around 2 AM, and will be all but finished in South MS by 8 AM.
It’ll initially look like things are starting to clear early on, but the upper level low catches up and keeps grey skies in place until Friday evening. As we head into the weekend, the cooler and drier air will take hold of the area and won’t let go. We’ll see nights in the low to mid 30s all next week, with even a few nights at or below freezing. Sunday night and Monday morning are included, and the chance for a wintry mix at this time is still lingering. Stay tuned.
