Thursday, January 23 Forecast Discussion

Cloud cover has been constant through the day thanks to mid to upper level moisture in the atmosphere. Temperatures were able to climb into the low 40s today, but cold air is pour into the Twin States and will be coming in through the evening and overnight. Because of the cold air, a Hard Freeze Warning and Wind Chill Advisory has been posted for most of us through the night. Wind chills tonight will drop into the single digits area wide.

Tomorrow will see clearing through the morning, but highs will not make it out of the 30s with some locations north of Interstate 20 (specifically Winston, Noxubee, and Kemper counties) could remain below freezing through the day on Friday.

We warm up into the weekend as high pressure shifts east. As it does, winds will turn from the south and pump back in warmer air as highs could reach 60 for Sunday as clouds increase ahead of our next big cold spell behind two cold fronts.

Cold front number one arrives Sunday night into Monday morning and could touch off a shower or two as it passes. Highs will drop back down into the 40s for Monday. Cold front number two arrives Tuesday and ushers in brutally cold air like what we saw earlier this morning where highs may stay below freezing and lows will be in the teens through Thursday. The end of next week looks to return highs to the 40s and 50s and end our cold spell.
