Monday, February 3 Forecast Discussion

Clouds have been very thick today across East Mississippi and West Alabama, and because of those clouds, temperatures have not gone anywhere today. The cloud cover has limited solar heating and with cold air working in at the surface, 2pm temperatures at Key Field were still in the upper 30s. We won't give too much back tonight as lows will be in the mid and upper 30s area wide with some fog developing below the cloud deck.

I don't expect much in the way of sunshine tomorrow either as an area of low pressure will begin to develop. This will send a warm front back north in the morning/early afternoon hours which will develop some showers. The cold front will arrive tomorrow evening bringing rain and perhaps some strong storms with the potential for gusty winds near 60mph and an isolated tornado. The front will clear through all areas locally around sunrise ending the rain for us.

Dry weather will be present Wednesday through most of Friday as high pressure builds in at the surface. We will not do much temperature wise as we will be right on the divide between cold air that will come as far south of north Mississippi and Alabama and warmer air to our south.

Our next system will start to organize on Saturday, and in advance, we could see a few rain showers through the day on Saturday. The cold front looks to arrive early on Sunday, which could mean some storms again, and temperatures will plummet through the afternoon and evening hours. This front will usher in some cold air as low dip back into the 20s and highs will struggle into the low 40s for Monday.
