Wednesday, February 6 Morning Forecast Discussion

By  | 

Happy Wednesday! It’s a very mild and muggy morning out there, with less fog cover than the past few mornings. Patchy fog may still be possible in spots, but no widespread concerns are expected. The record warm low-temperature for February 6 in Meridian is 64 degrees, and it looks like we may well beat that this morning. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies for our Wednesday, with perhaps a little bit more sunshine in the afternoon as compared to the last few days. Stray showers will be possible on your Wednesday, mainly in the morning hours. Highs today look to climb into the mid-70s with muggy conditions continuing.

A cold front to our north and west will eventually move through our area Thursday night. Until then, expect highs to climb into the upper-70s for Thursday, likely to be the warmest day of the next seven. The frontal passage will bring some late-day showers on Thursday, with leftover showers possible Friday morning. The majority of the rainfall will be during the overnight hours. Rainfall totals will be minimal. Much colder air will filter in behind this frontal passage, with afternoon temperatures only in the upper-40s. That’s an almost 30 degree temperature drop from Thursday afternoon to Friday afternoon!

We’ll make it back into the low-50s for highs on Saturday after starting the day near the freezing mark. We look to stay dry for the weekend, with highs climbing back to average by Sunday. Rain chances will return once again by Monday and Tuesday of next week as another cold front is set to move through our area. Temperatures will warm ahead of the cold front, and we may make it back to the 70 degree mark as early as Tuesday.
