The Arctic air-mass that moved in yesterday will keep cold conditions in place through the night, but will start modifying soon. In fact, tonight will be the last we’ll see in the 30s for well over a week! So tonight’s low will fall to 35 on the waterfront with inland areas falling to, or just below freezing.
BY TOMORROW WE’LL HAVE WARMED INTO THE UPPER 50S, AND AT THAT POINT IT’S OFF TO THE (TEMPERATURE/HUMIDITY) RACES AS A FRONTAL BOUNDARY MOVES IN FROM THE WESTERN GULF.
This front never really passes through, but does act as a magnet for Gulf moisture and brings grey, rainy skies to the Coast. This boundary doesn’t linger for long, but helps “daisy chain” at least 4 more low pressure systems through the Southeast. This will keep mid-to-upper 60 afternoon highs and scattered showers in place through next weekend, seemingly bringing “Spring” to South Mississippi a little early.
