02/09 – Brantly’s “Mostly Cloudy, Humid and Warm” Tuesday Forecast
Showers and thunderstorms moved across the coast overnight. That rain has now come to an end, but we are still looking at that moisture lingering behind. It will be warm and humid today. Temperatures will top out at around 70° along the coast, but some inland areas may see the lower to mid 70s. Expect a dry period now that that rain has moved off to the east and surface high pressure is settling in behind it. We will see a little bit of sunshine peeking through the cloud deck heading through the afternoon, which will allow us to warm up to about 10 to 15 degrees above-normal for this time of the year. Typically in mid-February, we’ll see high temperatures at around 62 or 63 degrees in Gulfport and Biloxi.
Tonight, we will see a few more showers push back into the region and rain chances stay elevated at around 40% today and tomorrow. Heading into Thursday, there’s a much better chance of seeing some heavy rain and some thunderstorms at our next big cold front approaches. That cold front will be moving through Thursday night, but showers linger behind on Friday as temperatures start to drop significantly. This upcoming weekend, high temperatures will only be in the upper 50s with overnight lows dropping down to the lower 30s by Sunday morning. Next week, we will see temperatures gradually start to get back into the mid 60s as rain chances dropped back down to just 20 to 30% each day.
