10/16 Ryan’s “Finally Fall” Monday Night Forecast

It finally feels like fall in South Mississippi after a cold front moved through early this morning, and cooler/drier air continues to filter in. There’s a little high, thin cloud cover near the coastline, and even that will continue to dissipate as the upper level features catch up with the front pushing into the Gulf. Since the skies will clear completely, we’ll achieve maximum radiational cooling and drop into the lower 50s tonight, though inland areas could dip into the upper 40s…very chilly. Tomorrow’s afternoon high will max out near 76 degrees, with low humidity, no cloud cover, and a light Northeast breeze. Expect these pleasant conditions to continue for the rest of the work week, but we’ll begin seeing humidity values rising by Friday after the ridge moves far enough East to bring Southerly winds to the area. By the beginning of the week, expect temperatures to rise back into the low 80s with a small chance of afternoon showers.

Ophelia is no longer a tropical system, but brought damaging winds and rain to Ireland and the U.K. Closer to home there’s a disturbance just Northeast of the Central Bahamas that has a 30% chance of developing within the next 5 days, but upper level features shouldn’t be favorable, and the system will likely just be absorbed by the frontal system pushing into the Atlantic.
