10/14 – Rob Knight’s “Less Humid” Friday Morning Forecast
This morning we have clear skies and cooler temperatures in the area. The airmass overhead is a drier one and it is being aided by high pressure to the northwest of us. The dry air will continue to slide into our region throughout the day and we will have high temperatures around 80. The winds will shift from an easterly direction to southeast by this afternoon at 8 to 12 MPH. Tonight will see temperatures cool off into the mid and upper 50s with light and variable winds.
On Saturday, expect a slightly warmer day with low-80s across South Mississippi. Sunday morning will have slightly warmer morning lows in the low to mid 60s. The day of transition will be as a result of high pressure moving to our east and the southerly winds ushering in a more humid airmass. Expect a few clouds to move in and highs in the mid-80s.
In advance of an approaching cold front from the northwest, Monday will be more humid with increasing clouds. The increased moisture and the arriving system will give us 40% rain chances through the day. The front comes through Monday into Tuesday with much colder temperatures behind it. Morning lows next week will be in the 30s and 40s, with high temperatures struggling to make it 70 degrees Wednesday and Thursday.
