Happy Thursday! Many counties in our area and beyond are under dense fog advisories this morning until 9 am. I can see the dense fog out my window as I’m writing this discussion, so be sure to use extra time to get to work or school as the fog is very dense in some spots. Rain showers will be scattered about our area, especially during the morning hours. Still will not be a wash out and the rain will not be continuous anywhere, but showers could linger on until the early afternoon hours. We should be all clear throughout east Mississippi and west Alabama by 1 or 2 p.m. with highs around 69. The sun may even pop out before it sets for the evening. Speaking of the evening, we’ll have partly cloudy skies throughout the overnight time frame, with clouds decreasing further after midnight. Lows will be around 48. We’ll stick with those partly cloudy skies through the Toython with highs around 67.
Friday will be our coolest day this week and this weekend as highs temperatures from Saturday until Tuesday will be in the low-to-mid-70s. We stay dry until Tuesday or Wednesday as a much stronger cold front approaches our area. I’m keeping the rain chances for both days on the lower side because the models still have to work out the timing of this disturbance, but it will certainly rain either Tuesday or Wednesday, or both. This system will be more robust and bring some heavier showers and maybe some thunderstorms to our area.
