10/11 – Rob Knight’s “Columbus Day” Morning Forecast
Upper level high-pressure is expect to pretty much remain in place through the short range portion of the forecast. An approaching cold front to the NW will slowly move E/NE and ride north of the Hattiesburg area. By late Tuesday through Wednesday night, high pressure pushes any moisture northwest of the area again, with dry weather anticipated Wednesday.
Well above normal temperatures expected to continue through much of the week. Not a lot of spread in forecast temperatures. The extended forecast continues to indicate warm and rather benign weather for the end of the workweek.
Heading into the weekend is when things get a little more uncertain. Almost every piece of guidance suggests we finally see a shift in the mid-levels but how fast that occurs is the main question. A trough will help to usher in a cold front and it could be a decent one returning the region to fall like conditions. Models suggest a much larger spread with temps for Saturday and through the remainder of the weekend.
