Cloud cover and light rain will continue through this evening before partial clearing begins. Increasing subsidence throughout the atmosphere will result in a sunnier and warmer weekend. However, there will be the risk of some radiation fog forming tonight as the surface high builds in. Temperatures will rebound back to more normal levels over the weekend with highs in the upper 60s and lower 70s and lows in the upper 40s and lower 50s.
A cold front will sweep into the forecast area Monday night then push through the coastal waters and into the central Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday. At this time, instability looks sufficient to allow for thunderstorm development. At this time, the risk of severe thunderstorm development looks to be minimal at best. If any area see severe thunderstorms form, it would be across portions of Southwest Mississippi. Temperatures will warm into the middle and upper 70s Monday afternoon in advance of the approaching front.
Colder air will move in Tuesday as rain departs to the NE. A light freeze will be possible both Tuesday and Wednesday nights for most of the area. Only areas along the immediate coast are forecast to remain just above freezing in the middle to upper 30s.
