10/15 – Payton’s Sunday Night Forecast

The cold front is on its way and will arrive in South Mississippi around midnight. We could see a few showers as it rolls through. Waking up it will be in upper 60s with a very slight chance of a lingering shower, but things weather will improve quickly into the lunch time hour. Temperatures tomorrow afternoon will top out in the mid 70s, which believe it or not is a few degrees below normal. It will be our
first day with widespread below normal temperatures since mid
September, and a welcome change from the last week or so when
temperatures have been running 7 to 10 degrees above normal. Clear
skies and low dewpoints will allow for efficient radiative
cooling and we should see the coolest temperatures Monday night
with lows in the upper 40s to around 50 degrees across northern
areas and the river parishes and in the mid to upper 50s for most
of the south shore.

Gradual recovery will begin on Wednesday as mid to upper level
ridging builds into the area. The subsidence associated with this
ridging should keep rain chances relatively low through the end of
the week, though a few isolated showers/thunderstorms will be
possible by Friday across southern areas which are closer to the
periphery of the ridge.
