12/11 – Jeff Vorick’s “Severe Potential Ahead” Sunday Night Forecast
With the calm-to-light winds and high moisture content, there is the potential for fog tomorrow morning. Monday will have mostly cloudy to overcast skies across South Mississippi. There is a 20% chance of showers.
A frontal system will make its way out of the Rockies Monday into Tuesday. A warm front associated with it will push through our area during the day Tuesday. That will put South Mississippi in the warm and moist sector of the system. There is a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms, particularly towards the evening hours.
There is a Slight (Level 2 of 5) risk for severity in thunderstorms Tuesday. Damaging straight-line wind gusts and tornadoes are in play. The cold front will be pushing through our area Wednesday. Numerous showers and thunderstorms can be expected ahead of it. As the cold front approaches, the potential is there for a squall line with strong-to-severe wind gusts in excess of 40 MPH.
The cold front will clear the area Wednesday into Thursday. There will be a much colder airmass behind it with temperatures dropping below seasonal by the end of the week.
