Saturday 2/2 Forecast Discussion

Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow this morning, so according to him Spring will come early this year. If you are a warm weather lover, don't get too excited as his forecasts are only accurate 39% of the time, so we will have to wait and see how the next month or so plays out. Even though the clouds hung around today, it wasn't a bad day to get out and about. After a chilly start in the 20s for most of us, we rose into the mid 60s-perfect for all of the Meridian Mardi Gras festivities. We begin a slow warm up tonight, as we only drop into the mid 30s. That continues for the next seven days as our winds shift back to the South and pull up warm, moist air from the Gulf. That, coupled with a few pulses of energy coming in from the North, will give us the chance for some scattered showers, mainly on Tuesday. There are no big storm systems headed our way over the next week, so severe weather will not be an issue. Once we hit mid-week our lows will only drop into the 40s, as highs continue to reach the mid 60s, with partly to mostly cloudy skies. A weak cold front will pass through on Wednesday into Thursday and that will knock highs down to around 60. Another shot at some scattered showers works its way in for Friday. Overall, this will be a pretty uneventful and quiet week weatherwise.
