1/1 – Jeff’s “Busy Start to 2023” New Year’s Night Forecast

2023 is off to a busy start weather-wise across our area. We’ve had fog issues that will plague us again tonight. Sea fog is settling in which has us under a Dense Fog Advisory until 10 AM for George and Stone County, and 12 Noon for everyone else. Temperatures will remain in the 60s overnight.

Fog will linger through much of the morning tomorrow. Once it dissipates, temperatures will climb into the 70s. There is a 30-40% chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. The threat for severity will be well to our north and west Monday.

Tuesday will be a much busier day across our area. The Storm Prediction Center has us under a Slight Risk (Level 2 of 5) for severity. The best ingredients for an outbreak of severe thunderstorms will be to our north. However, the threat for damaging winds and rainfall are the main issues for us. Guidance is suggesting that there will be activity ahead of the front that will be of long duration. This is not too unlike last Friday’s event.

The cold front will pass through our area Wednesday morning. There will be a chance of showers with its passage. After it is through, temperatures will be MUCH cooler at slightly below average numbers.
