Our quick changing weather pattern continues with no end in sight.... After reaching the 60s and low 70s yesterday, we have turned cold again today in the wake of a cold front that moved through last night. Afternoon temperatures drop to the upper 40s and low 50s along with a chilly north breeze. Fortunately, we do have lots of sunshine, which certainly helps. With a clear sky and decreasing wind tonight, temperatures will fall very quickly; we go below freezing between 9pm and 11pm followed by 8 to 10 hours of sub freezing temperatures as morning lows plummet into the middle and upper 20s.
For Friday, slightly warmer but still chilly with highs in the low 50s under a good supply of sunshine. Saturday morning will begin cold with lows below freezing again, then a nice warmup throughout the day with afternoon temperatures in the middle 60s. Yet another front blows in here Saturday night, dropping Sunday's temperatures to the low and middle 50s. Otherwise clear and dry.
Turning briefly warmer and unsettled early next week; rain arrives Monday with the potential for a few storms in South Mississippi. As the rain ends, we're expecting some of the coldest air so far this winter to blow in here by Tuesday evening and Wednesday.
