1/18 – Jeff’s “Wind Advisory” Wednesday Afternoon Forecast
A Wind Advisory is in effect for our area. It will be very warm this afternoon along with gusty winds of 15-25 MPH carrying through the day. There is also a 20% chance of passing showers. A line of showers and thunderstorms will make its way into our area late tonight. Nighttime stabilization will help the intensity of the activity wane as it pushes to its east. There is a very low-end potential of damaging straight-line wind gusts in the thunderstorms for South Mississippi. The cold front will clear the area shortly after daybreak Thursday. There will be a brief lull in the pattern as the workweek ends.
Another frontal system will form as we head into the weekend. We will be north of the warm front Saturday. This will allow for cloudy conditions and persistent rainfall, particularly towards the second half of the day. There is the potential for 2-3 inches of rain, with locally higher amounts possible. The system will exit our area by the end of the weekend.b
