09/19 – Steve’s Midday Forecast

As we in southern Mississippi welcome a new workweek, we can also greet drier conditions today and Tuesday across the area as a backdoor cold front (more like a ‘dry’ front) will drive humidity levels down. I say ‘dry’ since it certainly won’t be colder. In fact, high temperatures today and Tuesday will be in the low- to mid-90s. But unlike our normal summer pattern, we’ll have lower dew points and that should result in more comfortable weather.

Then, we resume a more familiar pattern mid- and late-week, as moisture return resumes on Wednesday through the weekend. Very early morning and afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms will be possible, though in the 20 percent range each day.

After we get through the late week days, there is a little division in just what happens for this coming weekend. While for the last several days forecast models have pushed a progressive pattern on the CONUS (continental U.S.), those same models now only place a weak trough of low pressure near or over the area but with no cold front to significantly modify our weather.

For now, I’m content to wait and see a day or two.
