Summer making it’s last swing tonight with a line of showers and storms. They are losing a lot of intensity and dissipating as they race south. Lows will stay in the mid 70s, and we could see some fog in the overnight and early morning hours before the front passes.

A strong cold front will move into South Mississippi tonight, and lows could drop into the upper 60s and low 70s before sunrise. There will be much cooler and drier air moving in behind the front, just in time for fall which officially begins Wednesday at 2:20 PM.

For Wednesday afternoon, temperatures will only climb in to the upper 70s to low 80s. It will be sunny, breezy and dry.

The coolest air will settle in by Thursday morning. Many of us will drop into the upper 50s with a few inland and rural areas possibly dropping into the upper 40s! Thursday and Friday will be perfectly pleasant with loads of sunshine, crisp blue skies, low humidity and highs near 80.

Morning lows by Friday and Saturday will stay in the 50s and low 60s. The upcoming weekend looks dry, but a little warmer with highs in the low 80s.

In the tropics, there are no threats to the Gulf Coast. Tropical Depression Peter and Rose will stay out to sea. There are two other areas we’re watching. One is in the Northern Atlantic, and it is not a threat to the U.S. There is another wave in the Atlantic that will likely become a named storm. It is currently not a threat to the U.S.
