Stay rain gear ready! We are going to see higher chances for scattered showers and storms this week. Some of the storms will produce heavy rain and frequent lightning. However, not everyone will see rain. It will be hot and humid with highs in the mid to upper 80s, depending on cloud cover. The more clouds, the lower the temps; however, it will still be quite humid with the tropical airmass in place. And those of us who see rain, will cool down briefly. This evening, rain chances will diminish, but the rain chances start to tick upwards in the overnight and early morning hours. Lows will stay warm and muggy each night this week. In the tropics, a tropical wave in the Eastern Atlantic has a medium chance of developing becoming a depression or storm this week. It will move westward over the Atlantic through the week. At this time, it is not a threat to the Gulf Coast. We’ll watch for changes.
It was another cool start with temps in the 50s. Today will be sunny and dry with highs near 80 degrees, so it will be a little warmer than yesterday. The winds are settling somewhat over land. There is a Small Craft Advisory in effect in our coastal waters through this evening. Tonight will be clear, pleasant and cool with lows in the 50s. The weekend looks beautiful and a little warmer with a gradual increase in the humidity. But, overall, it will still be very nice. It looks dry through next week.
It was another beautiful fall day in South Mississippi. Highs stayed in the 70s. The breezy north winds at 10 to 20 mph keeps a Fire Weather Warning in place until 6 PM tonight. Due to lack of recent rainfall, very low humidity, and breezy conditions, any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. Outdoor burning is not recommended. Tonight will be another chilly night with lows in the upper 40s and low to mid 50s. We are expecting a gradual increase in temperatures and humidity over the next seven days. But the morning will still be cool to pleasant with sunny and warm afternoons. Ian is in the Atlantic off the east coast of Florida and heading to the north. It weakened to a Tropical Storm but is now hurricane again. Landfall is forecast near Charleston, SC, by midday Friday. Also, Tropical Depression Eleven formed in the Atlantic yesterday. T.D. Eleven poses no threat to land and is already post-tropical. It will continue to fall apart as it drifts northwestward over the open waters of the Atlantic. Hurricane season officially ends on November 30.
