It may have been a few degrees cooler, but it was the more humid air moving in that made it feel worse. This will continue through the night as high pressure to the east lingers and a front is moving in from the Northwest.
THIS FRONT WILL BRING ABOUT THE MOST SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN THE WEATHER WE’VE SEEN IN WEEKS, BUT IT WILL ALSO BE ONE OF THE MOST SHORT-LIVED.
That’s because the front will move through overnight between Friday and Saturday, bringing afternoon highs down into the upper 70s by Saturday afternoon. It will move only slightly east of us before the boundary begins to transition into a warm front, which will be pulled northward through South MS by Sunday. So while we’ll only spend one day with true, fall-like weather, it thankfully doesn’t warm too quickly. Expect highs in the low-to-mid 80s for most of the week, and it seems yet another front will bring cooler and drier air again for next weekend.
