After a mild and calm Sunday, we’re starting to see our next weather system set up along the coast. Winds out of the south are helping to bring in moisture from the Gulf of Mexico ahead of our next cold front. Before that cold front moves through, a squall line with showers and thunderstorms is expected to roll across South Mississippi during the late afternoon and evening hours.
Some of the storms could be strong or even severe, with the main threat being damaging wind gusts. The National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center has outlined our viewing area in a “Marginal Risk” for severe weather, which is a threat level 1 out of 5. The rain should clear our area by early Tuesday morning.
Tuesday skies will be mostly sunny. Breezy conditions are likely after the cold front passes with winds out of the north at 10-20 miles per hour. Temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the lower to mid 70s during the day and lower 50s overnight.
