10/19 – The Chief’s “Breezy And Cool” Wednesday Midday Forecast
A sunny but cool afternoon as winds will be on the breezy side. High pressure is to our northwest and is providing for a cold and dry airmass across South Mississippi. Winds of 10 to 15 MPH out of the North will continue through this afternoon with high temperatures reaching the mid-60s.
High pressure getting closer to our area will allow for the winds will relax to light and variable. Clear skies tonight and the light winds will cause temperatures to get cold again. Expect upper-30s to low-40s tonight with patchy frost inland. Thursday starts a moderation trend as the cold and dry airmass begins to dissipate. High pressure moves to our east and winds will become southerly throughout the day. Temperatures will reach the low-70s.
The warm-up continues through the end of the week and by this weekend, there will be seasonal temperatures for the area. Skies will have a few clouds but the weather will be tranquil. By next week, there will be the potential for a frontal passage. Models are in disagreement over how much moisture and instability there will be to work with. But, there is a 40% chance of rain in place for Monday and we will continue to update the forecast.
