01/08 Ryan’s “Moist” Monday Evening Forecast
I know a lot of people out there don’t like the word “moist,” but there’s almost not better word to explain the next few days in South Mississippi. A low pressure system moved in from the Northwest overnight, and is now lingering over the Gulf Coast acting as a magnet for all the moisture in the Southeast. As this low slowly slides to the Southeast, “wrap around” moisture and upper level low pressure features will move in keeping the skies cloudy and the humidity high. This trend holds through most of the week as we continue to warm, ending in the low 70s by Thursday afternoon. Our next front will move through overnight between Thursday and Friday, bringing showers and thunderstorms and finally forcing this lingering moisture out. Temperatures will rapidly fall from the 70s to low 50s by Saturday, and freezing temperatures will return to the coast for the first time since that blast of Arctic air a week ago.
