Today expect on and off rain with cold temperatures and windy conditions as a low pressure system continues to slide eastward across the Gulf Coast. The rain is expected to continue across the forecast area as it spreads from west to east through Monday afternoon. Highs today will only get up to the lower to the upper 40s, but wind chill values will be in the mid 30s.
We expect an increase in clouds late Tuesday night/early Wednesday with approach and passage of the next system, however, low level moisture remains lacking overall so rain chances are slim to none heading into the middle of the week. Tuesday night and Wednesday night remain crisp in the upper 20s to lower 30s over southeast Mississippi and southwest Alabama. Expect temperatures to be in the mid 30s to around 40 near the coast. Highs on Wednesday should mostly range in the mid 50s across our region.
From there, temperatures don’t change too significantly during the Thursday through Sunday time-frame, with warmer highs towards the upper 50s and lower 60s Thursday and Friday, falling behind the front into the middle 50s for Saturday and Sunday. Lows Thursday night will be in the lower 40s, with cooler temperatures after our next cold front Friday night with lows in the lower to middle 30s. Overnight temps are similar Saturday night, falling into the lower to middle 30s for most locations.
