12/28 – Jeff’s “Very Mild” Wednesday Evening Forecast
The warm pattern is in full effect across our area. Some inland reporting sites hit 70 degrees today! Expect temperatures to cool into the 50s tonight with partly cloudy skies. A low deck of clouds along with patchy fog can be expected.
Tomorrow will be a warmer day with temperatures warming into the 70s across a lot of South Mississippi. Skies will be partly cloudy as moisture continues to increase ahead of our next weather maker. There will not be enough deep moisture or dynamics to support rain chances for our area Thursday.
The potential for sea fog to develop will be best Thursday night. The final Friday of the year will be an active one for our area. Showers and thunderstorms will be developing Thursday into Friday. They will slowly propagate east overnight, then be just to our west at daybreak Friday. There is an 80% chance of thunderstorms Friday and Friday night. The slow-moving nature of these thunderstorms means that there is potential for flooding, particularly in poor drainage areas.
Showers and thunderstorms will end Saturday morning. Clearing will take place and New Year’s Eve night should be a nice one. New Year’s Day will provide for a lull in activity, but another frontal system will be back in the picture for the start of next week.
