1/31 – Jeff Vorick’s “Gloomy Pattern Continues” Tuesday Evening Forecast

The gloomy pattern continues across South Mississippi. A sluggish frontal boundary is close to our area and will make some progress over the next 24 hours. Fog is poised to develop again due to so much low-level moisture and marine fog being present. We are under a Dense Fog Advisory until 9 AM tomorrow. The front making it through our area will determine exactly how long the fog sticks around. There is a slightly cooler airmass associated with it that will lead to morning lows in the 50s for the start of your Wednesday. A light north-northeasterly breeze with frontal passage will be able to mix the atmosphere enough for fog to lift.

The front will not advance very far tomorrow, though. Cloudy skies will persist through much of Wednesday with the potential for some late-afternoon clearing. Moisture will be on the increase Wednesday night as the front retreats north. Then, another frontal system will begin to influence our pattern.

Thursday will be a more active day. The system will provide for elevated rain potential. Timing and placing of the warm front will make the differences with the coverage in rainfall. Bands of steady rain have the potential to set up. It is looking like that would happen in the northern and northwestern part of the area. The entire area has a chance of showers and thunderstorms with the cold front that will pass through our area Thursday night into Friday.
