12/2 – Jeff Vorick’s “Fog Potential Overnight” Friday Evening Forecast
Breezy conditions and cloudy skies will be in place this evening. A warmer and more humid airmass has worked into South Mississippi throughout the day. Temperatures will not tumble like the past two nights. With the moist airmass and light winds off of the Gulf tonight, patchy dense fog is primed to develop across the area. This will hold especially true closer to the coast.
A frontal system will be approaching from the northwest. Rain chances will increase throughout the morning as the system gets closer and moisture peaks in our area. A piece of the system that came through earlier this week will be close enough to continue to aid in increasing moisture. As the cold front nears the area Saturday afternoon, there is potential for a thunderstorm or two. Rain chances will be around 50% tomorrow.
The front will pass through the area Saturday night. However, it won’t retreat quickly and cloud coverage will remain in place into Sunday. Along with another shot at morning fog, there is a 20% chance of rain. There will be breaks in the clouds Sunday and Monday.
An area of high pressure will build back in at the start of next week. Moisture and energy will be riding around the edge of the ridge. Low-end rain chances and warmth will be in place for the first full week of December.
