Some patchy dense fog may form overnight. Portions of South Mississippi are under a Dense Fog Advisory, including Stone and George Counties, until 6:00 a.m.
Rain chances should taper off from west to east late tonight into early Friday morning as a cold front moves across the region. A much drier air mass will spread into the region Friday into Friday night. Mostly clear skies are expected for Friday and Friday night.
Lows tonight range from the lower to mid 40s across most of South Mississippi tonight. High temperatures on Friday should range in the upper 50s to the lower 60s around the area. Cooler temperatures will follow for Friday night with lows in the mid to upper 30s over the interior and in the lower 40s near the immediate coast.
High pressure will build into the region and that will give us a rain-free pattern through Saturday. We could see the formation of a low pressure system off the Texas coast by Sunday morning which will then track to the east across the central Gulf through Sunday night.
On this track, the low stays well south of our coastal waters. An area of moisture moves across the area Sunday, and that will give us a high chance of showers. The highest coverage of rain though will stay out over the Gulf, closer to the center of low pressure. There will be little change in high temperatures for Saturday with Sunday’s numbers looking to hold mostly in the mid to upper 50s. Overnight lows will be cool but gradually become warmer with each night.
