12/6 – Brittany’s “Mild” Tuesday Evening Forecast
Tonight will be mild and cool while Wednesday promises to be another quiet but rather warm day as highs peak into the low 80`s for some with partly cloudy skies again. Meanwhile, surface high pressure over the Mid Atlantic states begins to retrograde slightly towards our area or generally across the northern Gulf with time. This in turn helps to promote sinking/subsidence aloft and radiational cooling taking place around daybreak. Could see some patchy fog once again, moreso with greater probabilities for western areas but not seeing a strong signal of dense fog concerns at this time, but morning lows may feel distinctly cooler, especially for coastal MS but still warm and pleasant into the afternoon.
Late this week and going into the weekend, persistently strong 588dm ridging remains anchored over the GOMEX helping to keep shortwave impulses and attendant quick-moving low pressure systems to our north. Seeing some indications of a front trying to press into our area on Friday which could deliver cooler temperatures as well as a few showers for northern areas, but will caution this front may struggle to make it far into our area with weak dynamic support, likely slowing to a crawl or weakening all together with time. However, the aforementioned ridge attempts at breaking down going into the weekend with several mid-level impulses pressing east into the low to mid MS valley region.
