12/09 – Brantly’s “Warm and Foggy” Thursday Night Forecast

We will continue to see some rain showers move through the area into this evening, with some thunderstorms not completely ruled out. We dry out overnight with a couple light showers possible for some on Friday, but most areas likely remain dry for the day. High temperatures for Friday will warm to near 80 for most, even reaching the low 80s in some areas. There will be a risk of dense fog this evening and through the overnight hours, mainly for areas along the Mississippi Gulf coast and coastal southeast Louisiana. A Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for these areas until 10 a.m. Friday morning.

Our main focus shifts to late Friday and through the day on Saturday as a cold front approaches and slides down through our area. We have a marginal risk of severe weather Friday night and into Saturday, which is risk level 1 out of 5 according to the Storm Prediction Center’s scale. The main threats are looking to be damaging winds and possibly an isolated tornado or two. The main line of rain and storms will move into inland areas as early as Friday night and look to exit our area late in the afternoon Saturday. Isolated rain chances stick around through Saturday evening following the front. We dry out overnight into Sunday as a high pressure system begins to build into the area.
