SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

It felt like October earlier this week with temperatures warming into the upper 70s. But, the next big drop on December's temperature roller coaster is on the way.

Cooler and drier air briefly settles across the Gulf Coast region for Thursday. Grab your coat, hat, and gloves because Thursday will begin chilly with "feels-like" temperatures in the 30s for much of the morning. By Thursday afternoon, plentiful sunshine will only manage to warm South Mississippi into the 50s. Another chilly morning is on the way, Friday, with much of the local area plunging into the 30s on the thermometer.

"Don't get used to the cool air," WLOX First Alert Meteorologist Wesley Williams said. "A warming pattern begins on Friday afternoon as temperatures rise into the 60s with cloud cover increasing throughout the day. Saturday looks even warmer with highs in the 70s."

But, that brief warm up pumps its brakes as a cold front arrives late Saturday bringing us a soggy, but not stormy, Sunday. Expect cooler conditions on Sunday with highs back in the 60s. And then a cool down kicks off next week with highs back in the 50s and lows returning to the 40s.

"Ladies and gentlemen, please keep your hands, feet, and legs inside the coaster at all times," said Williams. "And please keep your WLOX Weather App handy to keep track of all these changing conditions."
