1/10 – Rob’s “Mid-Week” Warm/Humid Forecast

Fog is being observed in a large portion of our forecast area. A Dense Fog Advisory remains in effect through the morning. Expect more low clouds and even some of that light fog to linger throughout the day. No real rainfall is expected today but a passing shower or some drizzle cannot be ruled out. Fog should again develop tonight ahead of a system that will impact the forecast area Thursday bringing the area a good chance of rain. This system will move across the area Thursday with high rain chances…right now not expecting much of the way of thunderstorms. A strong cold front will sweep across the forecast area Thursday night into Friday morning…with cloud coverage lingering through Friday evening. There is a chance further north across central Mississippi and points northward for a brief wintry mix on the backside of this system…but not for our area. Strong cold air advection in the wake of the front will push lows into the upper 30s and lower 40s by Friday morning.

High pressure moves in for the weekend with WINDY conditions Friday into Saturday as the weekend will bring sunshine. Temperatures will once again go below average, but should not be as cold as the last system.Highs will only climb into the upper 40s and low 50 Friday and Saturday, but will dip into the middle 40s on Sunday. Overnight lows will dip into the lower to middle 30s Friday night, but should cool further into the upper 20s and lower 30s for both Saturday and Sunday nights.

Going into next week it should remain rather dry. Guidance has been showing another shot of rain coming into the forecast by Tuesday or Wednesday but these runs have kind of backed off on that notion. We will have to continue to watch as forecast evolves.
