Thursday, October 10 Forecast Discussion

High pressure has started to build in above us and has helped to clear the clouds out from what we saw yesterday. Temperatures area wide have increased 8 to 10 degrees above readings yesterday, and we will keep a small warming trend in place into the weekend.

A cold front will approach the area on Sunday but is forecast to wash out as it crosses the Mississippi River. This front will lead to an increase in clouds for Sunday and bring some slightly cooler air for the start of next week, but it does not look, at this time, that any moisture should make it this far east to impact East Mississippi or West Alabama.

The next front that will impact looks to arrive Tuesday into Wednesday. As of now, it looks like this front will clear out for Thursday, but confidence in the forecast of this front is low with a few different solutions offered by the models. For now, I am going with the solution that features showers late Tuesday and showers and potentially storms on Wednesday. Right now, no severe weather looks likely, but we will monitor that as we get closer and fine tune the forecast for you.

The front should exit Thursday morning and leave us with much cooler and drier air as we close out next week. Highs should remain in the lower to middle 80s through next Tuesday.
