Showers and thunderstorms will continue rolling onshore in South Mississippi this afternoon and evening. The rain chance will be high today, at around 90 percent. Some of the storms may produce heavy rainfall and gusty winds.
It will feel warm, but muggy today due to high humidity levels. High temperatures will top out at around 80 degrees this afternoon.
The rain will linger into the night as well. Showers and thunderstorms will be more sporadic in the overnight hours, but widespread rain will return on Thursday morning.
Eventually a cold front will sweep through on Thursday afternoon and clear the rain out as much cooler and drier air settles in. Around the time trick-or-treaters hit the streets, conditions will be windy and cool. Winds will be out of the north or northwest at 10-20 mph with temperatures in the lower 50s to upper 40s. Waking up Friday morning, temperatures will be in the upper 30s. High temperatures for the weekend will be in the lower to mid 60s.
It will also be quite breezy along the coastal counties of South Mississippi. These increasing southeast winds along with approaching spring tides have warranted a Coastal Flood Advisory for Hancock County through late Wednesday morning. On the water, seas will be at a light to moderate chop with seas at 1-2 feet today. Tomorrow, a Small Craft Advisory is in effect as seas become rough for mariners at 2-5 feet in protected waters and 6-9 feet in the Gulf. Winds will be near Gale force.
Don’t forget — the time changes this Saturday night into Sunday morning as we “fall back” one hour.
