1/25 – The Chief’s “Cloudy & VERY Windy” Wednesday Morning Forecast

As the cold front exits stage right, we will see temps begin to fall this morning into the 40s and 50s by mid-morning. With strong cold air advection and cloud cover, temps will not put on many points through the day. Winds will also be a factor over the next 24 hours with gust through today into the 30 mph range. Overnight winds will drop off but still breezy in the 10-15 mph range…which means wind chill will play a factor. As the skies clear Thursday and winds fall, there will be a strong radiational cooling effect for overnight hours Thursday night. Temps will be around or below freezing for at least a portion of the area, mainly over the northern half. Temps could flirt with the upper 20s over southern Mississippi.

Friday and Saturday should be somewhat tranquil but the next system will be on the horizon for Sunday maybe as early as Sat night to see some showers/t-storms begin to develop to the west and move into the area. This is day 5 and global models are in fairly good agreement, which is not common but does occur. A cold front should be moving near the area before stalling. This could set up some training cells over the area during the Sunday to Monday time frame. We will need to dig into this further as we get near the timing for this system to move into our area.
