Veterans Day has been a beautiful one with ample sunshine and temperatures in the 70s. We will see clouds start to arrive around sunrise on our Tuesday ahead of our cold front that will work through in the beginning of the day. This front will only bring a few clouds and a wind shift to winds out of the north, and winds will start howling through the late morning and early afternoon as a strong Canadian high pressure arrives, bringing easily the coldest air of the season so far.
Highs on Tuesday will happen around noon with temperatures falling through the afternoon hours. Skies will clear overnight on Wednesday with lows bottoming out in the upper 20s area wide. A Freeze Warning has already been issued for all Mississippi counties except Wayne for Wednesday morning.
Highs on Wednesday only rebound to the lower 50s area wide thanks to the cold air that will continue to filter in, but things start to change on Thursday. After another start below freezing, we will see temperatures climb back toward 60 for Thursday and make it near 70 for Friday with low 70s through the weekend as the same Canadian high pressure moves to our east and turns our winds to the south, bringing in warmer air and more moisture. Winds above the surface will also shift to the southwest, aiding in our warm-up and also setting the stage for our next couple of weak systems.
Friday through Monday looks to be a showery period as some weak areas of low pressure move past and look to touch off some showers each day.
