Cloudy and cool as summer ends and fall begins

Wesley's Tuesday Morning First Alert Forecast

Plan on relatively cool weather today as summer ends and fall begins. The official moment the seasons will change is called the fall equinox and that will occur at exactly 8:30 AM. As Beta has made landfall in Texas, the storm is weaker and is farther away from Mississippi. So, while today probably won’t be rain-free in South Mississippi, it will at least be less rainy than yesterday. However, the threat of minor to moderate coastal flooding continues with this morning’s high tide possibly up to four feet above normal in Hancock County and possibly up to two feet above normal in Harrison and Jackson Counties. The threat for minor coastal flooding continues through Thursday. Meanwhile, this morning’s temperatures in the 60s will only warm into the 70s by this afternoon. Normally, a late September afternoon brings temperatures in the mid 80s so this afternoon will be a bit cooler than that. Wednesday, Wednesday night, and Thursday will bring better rain chances and the possibility for heavier rain as Beta moves eastward toward Mississippi. Today will be less rainy than yesterday with morning temps in the 60s and afternoon highs in the 70s which is cooler than normal. We’ll possibly see heavier rain tomorrow into Thursday as Beta moves eastward toward Mississippi. Looking ahead to this weekend, which is the first weekend of fall, it looks fairly nice with relatively low rain chances and morning temperatures in the 70s and afternoon temperatures in the 80s.
