12/1 Rob’s “Look Ahead” 1st of December Forecast
Surface high pressure will continue to build in from the north today through Saturday in the wake of the weak frontal passage, while at the same time a mid/upper level area of high-pressure will build over the western Gulf of Mexico. The frontal boundary will push very slowly southeast through the offshore coastal waters and northern Gulf today before stalling by tonight. Lingering low level moisture in Jackson County and eastern Harrison County is causing stratus and areas of fog to linger early this morning, and that will likely continue with a fog threat through about 9 am.
Lower humidity will become noticeable by late this morning and during the afternoon today along with mild/pleasant temperatures reaching the lower 70s for highs. Strong radiational cooling from near calm winds and mostly clear to partly cloudy skies tonight should lead to more fog development. After some early morning fog and low clouds on Saturday, partly to mostly sunny skies will make for pleasant temperatures again for highs on Saturday with highs in the low to mid 70s.
The next system to affect the area will begin moving into our NW’tern zones by Monday…
