11/8 – Jeff Vorick’s “Hot Day With Changes Ahead” Tuesday Afternoon Forecast
It will be another HO
T day across South Mississippi. Temperatures will top out in the mid-80s across much of the area. Easterly winds will become southerly near the coast at around 10 to 15 MPH. But, there is a change to the pattern. Tonight will have cooler lows around 60 with northeast winds of 5 to 10 MPH overnight.
The flow will change and drier air will be ushered in. A high pressure to our northeast combined with Nicole will have a northeasterly flow in place for the middle of the work week. Temperatures will be closer to seasonal with highs in the mid-to-upper 70s, and morning lows in the 50s. The envelope of clouds from now-Tropical-Storm Nicole will provide for mid and upper level clouds Wednesday afternoon through much of Friday.
Nicole is presently a tropical storm with its eyes set on the Space Coast of Florida. At this time, Hurricane Warnings are in place from the Palm Beaches all the way to Daytona Beach. Landfall is expected overnight Wednesday into Thursday as a Category 1 Hurricane. Nicole will turn to the northeast during the day Thursday. Direct impacts are not expected at this time for the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
For our area, the week will end on a mild note. A storm system from the west will approach the area. A cold front will pass through the area Saturday bringing with it rain chances. Following the frontal passage, a much colder airmass will take hold.
