Thursday, January 2 Forecast Discussion

Our cold front has just passed through East Mississippi and the clouds are starting to thin. Winds have picked up from the northwest which are funneling in much colder air that will be with us for 36 hours. Lows overnight will bottom out in the low 20s with wind chills in the lower teens by sunrise.

We will see ample sunshine tomorrow, although we are going to struggle to warm up to the lower 40s and some locations may not make it that warm. After another night in the 20s for Saturday morning, we will make it back to the 50s as clouds return late on Saturday and winds from the south deliver warmer and more humid air.

Sunday brings our next cold front with rain showers to the area. The front will clear early Monday morning and bring the coldest air we have seen since February 2011 to the area. Highs on Monday will struggle to the mid 30s with highs on Tuesday potentially not getting above freezing for everyone.

Lows Tuesday and Wednesday morning will be in the teens with a record possible on Tuesday morning (record is 15 but we could get a few degrees colder than that). Highs rebound to 40 by Wednesday and the mid 40s for Thursday as our next rain chance arrives.
