11/10 – Jeff’s “Cold Weekend” Thursday Afternoon Forecast

After a chilly start, temperatures have warmed quite nicely in South Mississippi. High temperatures will reach the mid-70s across the area with partly to mostly cloudy skies. Winds will become breezy out of the north this afternoon. The clouds stick around overnight as temperatures will cool off to the 50s inland, to around 60 on the coast. Partly cloudy skies will continue with a northeasterly breeze.

Tropical Storm Nicole is currently moving along the west coast of Florida. It will make a second landfall in the Big Bend region of the state later today. Nicole will then move through Georgia and the Carolina’s during the day Friday. It is forecast to weaken into a tropical depression while moving northward. It is expected to get absorbed by a frontal system and depart the U.S. over the weekend.

Friday will provide for a substantially clearer day. The Veterans Day holiday will be warmer with high temperatures reaching the upper 70s. Our next cold front will be approaching the area. Cloud cover will increase overnight Friday into Saturday ahead of the front. There is a 20% chance of showers Saturday morning. Skies will remain mostly cloudy but clearing will be quick into Saturday night. Temperatures will plummet to lows in the 40s on the coast, with 30s inland. Temperatures on Sunday will struggle to reach 60!

The next weather-maker will form late in the weekend in the western Gulf of Mexico. The storm system will move east across the Gulf Coast. These types of systems tend to be our most prolific rainmakers. At this moment, the timing for the system looks to bring increasing cloud coverage through the day on Monday, rain chances late in the day, and the highest chances of rain being overnight into Tuesday. The cold front will pass through later in the day Tuesday.
