10/29 – Brantly’s “Unsettled Weather” Tuesday Afternoon Forecast

Scattered showers will continue moving onshore in South Mississippi on and off through the afternoon. High pressure near the Bahamas is steering a very weak tropical wave in the Gulf of Mexico north towards the Gulf Coast. This tropical wave doesn’t have a chance of developing into anything significant, but it will provide moisture flow into the area today and for the next couple of days as a warm front lifts north.

It will feel warm and muggy today due to high humidity levels. The rain chance today will be near 70 percent. That carries into tonight as well as thunderstorms move into the area. Rain chances go up to around 80 percent on Wednesday. We will likely pick up between one and three inches of rain this week, although some areas may see locally higher amounts. As that warm front passes through, temperatures will heat up slightly into the upper 70s. But the warm weather won’t last for long…

Eventually a cold front will sweep through on Thursday night and clear the rain out. Then much colder air will settle in. Waking up Friday and Saturday mornings, temperatures will be in the lower 40s with some areas even dropping into the upper 30s. High temperatures for the weekend will be in the lower to mid 60s.

It will also be quite breezy along the coastal counties of South Mississippi. These increasing southeast winds along with approaching spring tides have warranted a Coastal Flood Advisory for Hancock County through Wednesday morning. On the water, seas will be at a light to moderate chop with seas at 1-2 feet today and tomorrow.

Don’t forget — the time changes this Saturday night into Sunday morning as we “fall back” one hour.
