03/13 – Brantly’s “Weekend Heat” Friday Morning Forecast
Warm and humid once again today with lots of moisture in the air. Some of that moisture has settled to the surface, and with relatively calm winds, that has allowed for fog to form across the region this morning.
We have a Dense Fog Advisory in effect through 9 a.m. for all of South Mississippi, surrounding areas including Southeast Louisiana and South Alabama, as well as our adjacent waters like the Mississippi Sound and Gulf of Mexico.
Rain chances will remain very low through the, but a pop up shower cannot be ruled out. With a mixture of sun and clouds today and tomorrow, there will be enough daytime heating to allow temperatures climbing well into the 70s along the coast to near 80 for some inland locations.
Normally, this time of the year, high temperatures would be in the upper 60s, but we will be much warmer than that… Temperatures will remain above normal through the weekend and at least the first half of next week… staying with the mid 70s to upper 70s, although some areas will hit 80 degrees, especially those areas that are inland farther away from the coast. We do have a small chance for rain each day as we get into this very late spring-like weather pattern. Rain chances will be at around 20 to 30 percent each day through at least Thursday as afternoon showers may pop up.
Looking ahead at the long-range models, there is no significant cold front in the foreseeable future, so expect these warm temperatures to stick around.
With these warm temperatures, expect tree and grass pollen to remain at high levels over the next few weeks.
