12/30 – Jeff Vorick’s “Dense Fog Advisory” Friday Night Forecast
Ample moisture, cool temperatures, and light enough winds will allow for dense fog to set up in spots. Sea fog will be an issue along and south of I-10 overnight tonight. A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 9 AM tomorrow for Pearl River, Hancock, Harrison, and Jackson County. Areas along and south of I-10 have it in place until Noon.
A cold front sits to our northwest which will pass through our area tomorrow morning. It will bring a 20-30% chance of passing showers around daybreak. There are not enough ingredients for thunderstorms or widespread rainfall. Clearing will happen through the afternoon Saturday. New Year’s Eve festivities will have no issues tomorrow night outside of fog settling in again. New Year’s Day will be a pleasant day with temperatures in the 70s and partly cloudy skies following the dissipation of fog. Fog will be an issue Sunday night into Monday as well.
As we start the first week of 2023, our attention will need to turn to a frontal system making its way out of the Rockies. Shower and thunderstorm chances are in the picture Monday through Wednesday. There is a risk for severity with thunderstorms Tuesday into Wednesday. Exact details are uncertain at the moment but it is looking to be a rocky first half of the week across our area.
