Most cloudy Thursday, little chance of rain

Most cloudy Thursday, little chance of rain

The clouds will slowly start to thin out overnight. Temperatures will hold in the 70s with wind gusts up to 30 mph continuing. The threat for rain will be coming to an end.

Thursday will be mostly cloudy with highs around 85. Friday will be mostly sunny with highs again around 85. No real threat for rain.

Then the forecast gets a bit muddy. Originally — and up until the last 12 hours of model data — the idea was a dry “cold” front would pass through the area this weekend. It was going to help keep temperatures down while we held on to a north wind. That front is in question, now.

At the same time, Invest 90L in the Gulf of Mexico may be drifting north this weekend and may — emphasis on may — be just off the Louisiana/Mississippi coast by Saturday night or Sunday morning. Or it may not.

Right now, we are still digging through the latest available data trying to put together the most accurate forecast. But I think a lot of folks in South Mississippi have heard the story about “the cold front that will show up to usher the tropical system away from the area” before. And I do not plan on turning a blind eye to history.

So we will continue to monitor the weekend forecast and Invest 90L for changes during the next few days.
