11/13 – Jeff’s “COLD Night With Rain Ahead” Sunday Night Forecast
Tonight will be another cold night across South Mississippi. Temperatures will plummet into the 30s in quick order. Upper-level clouds streaming in combined with a slight wind shift should keep temperatures above the freezing mark in most locations.
Monday will provide for a brief pattern transition. Winds will shift to more of an east-southeasterly flow. A system to our west will be forming in the western Gulf of Mexico near Texas. It will track east through the day. Our temperatures will warm into the 60s with increasing cloud coverage through the day.
By tomorrow evening, partly-to-mostly cloudy skies will be in place. Shower chances will increase to around 40% during the evening hours. The system will work into the area and steady rain will be falling around or shortly after midnight. The heaviest rain and thunderstorm activity will be in the pre-dawn hours Tuesday. Shower and thunderstorm chances will diminish throughout the morning with nearly all activity ending by noon. Rainfall totals could near 2″, with some areas receiving locally higher amounts.
Clearing will commence the second half of Tuesday with the cold pattern returning. The remainder of the week will be below-seasonal. The next appreciable rain chance following the early week storm system will be next weekend.
