12/05 – Brantly’s “Dry Tonight, Wet Weather Tomorrow” Sunday Night Forecast
We will be focusing on an approaching cold front and associated line of showers and storms entering our area by early Monday afternoon. Damaging winds may be the only risk, with the potential for some sub-severe wind gusts along the line, especially for inland areas. A couple of embedded stronger storms within the line may become briefly capable of producing localized 40-60 mph gusts.
The line of storms is expected to steadily diminish Monday evening, with the light shower activity diminishing with time. We should see the front settle into the northern Gulf of Mexico by Monday night, eventually seeing most precipitation diminishing at that point only with perhaps some isolated/scattered showers around.
Temperatures are going to solely rely on the evolution of the cold front and when that lifts back north as a warm front. Currently it looks like a majority of the area is in for a relatively chilly Monday night and Tuesday with the front remaining along the coast or just offshore in the marine zones. Lows dip into the lower to middle 40s over far interior areas, with lower to middle 50s along the coast. Highs struggle to climb with extensive cloud cover, rain, and cold air moving in. Tuesday night features little change in temperatures with lower to middle 50s for most locations, and perhaps upper 50s to lower 60s along the immediate coast as the warm front begins to lift north into the area. Wednesday will offer some improvement on temperatures, reaching the lower to middle 60s for most locations. Across the coast, highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s can be expected Wednesday afternoon. Lows Wednesday night will fall into the middle to upper 40s inland and lower 50s across South Mississippi.
