Ryan’s Leap Day Forecast

Leap day comes just every four years and today’s didn’t disappoint. Beautiful blue skies, with moderate humidity, and highs in the low 70s made fore a beautiful day, but if you looked closely, you could see some heavier clouds to the North. These clouds signal the presence of a weak stationary front, which will be moving off and replaced by a stronger cold front as early as tomorrow (Tuesday) night. The MSGC is currently listed under a slight severe threat, while areas to the North like Hattiesburg and beyond are under a moderate threat, very similar to the conditions we had last Tuesday which spawned 13 tornadoes in MS. This front is expected to be moving through the area around 9 PM and is a situation we will be monitoring closely. After this frontal passage, skies will clear through Wednesday and into Thursday before another weak frontal boundary will slide through, causing another increase in cloudiness and rain chances. Once through round two of fronts, we’ll approach the weekend with very favorable conditions, similar to what we saw today and last weekend.
