After a pleasant Thanksgiving Day, temperatures will dip into the upper 40s tonight. With high pressure parked over the Southeast, we will keep mostly clear skies through the night. A few clouds will work their way into the area by tomorrow morning. On Black Friday, it will be mild with temperatures in the mid 70s.
Similar conditions are in store for Saturday but big changes are on the way. A pretty strong cold front will move through Saturday night bringing some showers and some strong storms. At the time of this post, the Storm Prediction Center has South Mississippi under a Marginal Risk for severe weather Saturday night, which is threat level 1 out of 5. The main threat in any strong or severe storms that form will be damaging wind gusts, and an isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out.
After the front passes through, temperatures will drop steadily through the afternoon Sunday. A chilly day is expect on Monday and we will dip into the mid 30s Monday night into Tuesday morning.
