Finally cooler by Sunday

A weekend cold front will clear us up, dry us out, and cool us down

Wesley's Friday Morning First Alert Forecast

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - 80 degrees? In February? That just happened this week across parts of the Gulf Coast region as a springlike weather pattern persisted.

This unseasonable warmth is one of the reasons why the weather has been misbehaving so much, sending us such frequent fog.

But, a cold front will finally clear us out, bringing cooler and drier conditions this weekend.

Sunday and Monday will be a welcome break from our extended “spring break” weather pattern. But, it will become warmer again for the middle of next week.

Warm Friday and Saturday. Then some rain Saturday night. Then cooler and drier Sunday and Monday. Might turn warmer and slightly wetter for the middle of next week.
