3/19 – Jeff Vorick’s “Freeze Warning” Sunday Night Forecast
The late season chill will stick around for a little longer across South Mississippi. A Freeze Warning is in effect for all of the Southern Six counties until 10 AM tomorrow morning. Clearer skies and lighter winds will allow for more efficient cooling overnight. If winds can become very light and allow for radiative cooling, a lot of the area will see temperatures below 30 degrees.
Protecting pipes and people, and bringing in plants and pets are key tonight. High pressure to our north will move to its east over the next couple of days. The flow will begin to change to a ridging pattern, strengthening the area high pressure that will be to our east. A warm southerly flow will start to take hold towards midweek. The storm track will stay well to our north through midweek.
Temperatures surge to above seasonal averages by the end of the week. The aforementioned ridge of high pressure will scoot farther east and break down too. A system will be moving into our region by the end of this week. Exact details are uncertain at the moment. But, elevated rain chances look to be in the picture as we get closer to the weekend.
