12/03 – Brantly’s “Dry Weekend, Wet Next Week” Friday Evening Forecast
A high pressure system over the region will shift east of our area tonight and Saturday. We may have to watch for a couple of passing light rain showers across our far interior northwest communities by late Saturday afternoon, but for now we have kept measurable rain chances below 10 percent.
Very light southerly to southwesterly winds will develop and persist tonight and Saturday. Conditions will once again become favorable for fog development late tonight into Saturday morning, some potentially dense. A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for tonight into early Saturday for the entire South Mississippi area. The best fog potential will probably be over inland areas away from the coast, but with winds becoming more southerly the fog potential will slowly be becoming more coastal as well, especially over the weekend.
Lows tonight should generally range from 50-55 degrees across almost all of the area, except a little warmer near the immediate coast and beaches. On Saturday, after the fog burns off by mid morning, expect partly cloudy skies (but with clouds increasing in coverage through the day) and high temperatures in the low to mid 70s across the entire area.
