Today is going to be a beautiful day, but it will be hot but not as hot as yesterday. Temperatures will be in the upper 80s to low 90s. The humidity is a little lower thanks to the passage of a cool front. We are also enjoying a northerly flow today. If you can find the shade, you’ll be golden today. Tonight, we are going to be quite pleasant with lows in the 60s inland a near 70 closer to the coast. Into the weekend, the humidity will rise again, and we will see a slight chance for a few scattered showers. Another more potent front will arrive early next week bringing more seasonal temperatures, lower humidity and drier conditions. This front will also help steer Tropical Depression Nine away from South Mississippi (cue the applause). Next week we will still keep a close eye on the Gulf since it still looks like TD Nine could be a tropical storm or hurricane in the southern Gulf of Mexico.
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.
It will be another beautiful fall day in South Mississippi. Highs will struggle to get out of the 70s. It will also stay breezy with north winds at about 10 to 20 mph. A Fire Weather Warning continues 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. 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.
