Scattered showers and possible storms expected ahead of frontal system

It has been a warm start to the week. The clouds have been building into South Mississippi this afternoon ahead of a cold front which will slowly move through the area. The humidity is up just like the temperatures, but the word for the next 24 hours will be: showers. We are seeing a surge of moisture ahead of a cold front.

That moisture is in the form of cloud cover, humidity and showers. We are going to see scattered showers and thunderstorms this evening, overnight and into Tuesday, so keep your umbrella handy. The front should move south of the area Wednesday, but the drier air will not be felt until late Wednesday night. So, waking up Thursday morning, it will be cooler and drier and feel more like fall. We are in that fall pattern where are temperatures and humidity will be up and down and up and down with the passage of fronts. Ahead of the fronts, we’ll see warmer temperatures and more humid conditions, and behind the front, we’ll bask in the cooler and drier air…for a couple of days before we do it all over again.

In the tropics, there is a disturbance in the western Caribbean which now has a 40% chance for development over the next two and five days. It is not considered a threat to the U.S., but it could develop into a Tropical Depression before moving inland over Belize in the next couple of days. Hurricane Season ends November 30th.
