12/12 – Jeff’s “Mild Start to the Week” Monday Afternoon Forecast
Mild conditions will continue to start this week. More peeks of sunshine can be expected later in the afternoon, towards the evening. The potential is there for patchy to dense fog again tomorrow morning.
Our next weather-maker will be making its way out of the Rockies over the next 24 hours. The warm front is expected to pass through the area during the day Tuesday. Ample moisture won’t move in until the nighttime hours. However, there is a 30% chance of thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours.
Wednesday will be the busy day across South Mississippi. The ingredients will be primed for strong to severe thunderstorms. All modes, including isolated tornadoes, damaging straight-line winds, and flash flooding are possible. The Storm Prediction Center has placed us under a Slight Risk (Level 2/5) for Wednesday.
The cold front will clear the area early Thursday. Clearing and much colder temperatures will be present to close out this week. Temperatures will be below seasonal averages by the time we reach the weekend.
