02/20 Ryan’s “Record Highs” Tuesday Evening Forecast
We keep breaking or tying record highs in Gulfport, and I expect that trend to continue through the rest of the week and weekend. Isolated showers moved through this afternoon as expected and while we’ll see a few more through the night, I’m expecting much more rain tomorrow. What’s happening is there is a long string of frontal systems which will move into the South MS area, but never THROUGH the area, so we’ll keep seeing “pre-frontal” conditions (i.e. “return flow,” Southerly winds, cloud cover, and high humidity) but never see the cooler and drier air on the other side of the front. This will keep our temperatures in the mid-to-upper 70s all week long, but they will begin to fall into the lower 70s by the beginning of next week as these frontal systems move North and our Southerly winds decrease. There will be a slight chance of showers all week long, peaking at about 40% by next Monday. Otherwise expect around 20-30% and at least partly cloudy skies for the next 7 days.
