SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Slightly lower humidity may reach the Mississippi coast by the middle of this week. But, first, we’re looking at higher rain chances.
Keep those umbrellas handy for Monday with more scattered showers and thunderstorms on the way. Showers and thunderstorms will be likely on Tuesday as the cold front moves through the area.
Weather may quiet down for Wednesday and Thursday behind the front with perhaps even slightly lower humidity in coastal Mississippi for midweek. Low temperatures on Wednesday morning and Thursday morning might even drop into the cool upper 60s. This is all assuming the front actually pushes all the way offshore and doesn’t stall along the coast like these fronts usually tend to do in July.
Eventually, showers will again be possible Friday into the weekend as the front offshore is drawn back inland.
Also worth mentioning, any time a rare cold front gets into the Gulf or the western Atlantic in summer, which is also during hurricane season, it is sometimes possible for a weak tropical disturbance to spin up along that front. Thankfully, the computer models still do not show any Gulf tropical activity this week. We’ll be watching just in case.
