10/14 – The Chief’s “Pleasant/Warm” Friday Midday Forecast
Temperatures have warmed quickly today under a dry airmass. It will get to around 80 degrees this afternoon with east winds shifting to southeast at 8 to 12 MPH. Tonight will find a quick cool-down with temperatures in the low to mid 70s this evening. It will cool off to the mid to upper 50s overnight 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. With the cold front having a shallower slope and moisture not recovering enough by Monday, there will not be enough support for thunderstorms. There will be a 40% chance of rain in place. 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.
