03/10 – Brantly’s “Warming Trend Continues” Wednesday Forecast
A slightly warmer and drier airmass with lower afternoon humidity looks to remain in place across much of south Mississippi. Expect the warmest temperatures of the week to be on both Wednesday and Thursday. Highs Wednesday generally range in the mid 70s to around 80 inland and in the lower 70s along the coast. Temperatures on Thursday may be a degree or two warmer over most places. Lows Wednesday night range from the upper 40s to lower 50s inland and in the mid to upper 50s along the immediate coast.
An area of high pressure across the southeastern states weakens slightly towards the end of the week but otherwise maintains a light southerly flow over the forecast area. This will help maintain dry conditions over the forecast area through the period and contributes to warm afternoon temperatures while the light southerly flow will aid in keeping overnight lows mild. Highs on Friday range from the lower 80s inland to the mid/upper 70s closer to the coast. Lows Thursday night range from the lower 50s inland to the mid 50s at the coast, then trend a bit warmer for Friday night to mostly in the mid 50s.
High pressure will slide off the eastern seaboard Sunday night as low pressure system moves into the middle Mississippi Valley bringing a cold front into region by Sunday night. This will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms into the forecast area Sunday night and Monday.
