Saturday, October 13 Forecast Discussion

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - The week ahead will momentarily bring back the humidity and some above average temperatures. In fact, tomorrow afternoon we will be back into the upper 80s. A sub-tropical ridge will also be sending a mild southerly wind our way increasing our dew points back into the 60s. The added moisture for Sunday night will hinder lows from dropping below the mid-60s. A weak cold front approaches the area on Monday bringing in the chance for a few isolated showers and partly cloudy skies. This same front will stall over central Mississippi going into Tuesday causing another cloudy day with isolated showers. At this time there will be a slightly noticeable difference in temperatures as highs drop from 80s on Monday to mid-70s on Tuesday.

Stray showers stick around for Wednesday morning then we can expect a cloudy afternoon with highs in the lower 70s. Once things begin to dry up Wednesday night lows will be able to drop into the lower 50s making Thursday morning a bit on the chilly side. Mostly sunny skies will be expected throughout Thursday and you may want to grab a sweater for the early and later parts of the day. Lows will be in the mid-50s.

Friday highs will be in the mid to upper 70s with the slight chance for a stray shower in the afternoon as another swell of moisture ahead of another cold front approaches the region. Overall you can expect partly sunny skies with increasing clouds into the night. As we go into Saturday and Sunday rain chances increase along with cloud cover as the cold front inches closer to our area.
