Skies are mostly clear across the forecast area early this
morning with temperatures in the mid 60s to lower 70s. High
pressure continues to cover most of the eastern U.S. And will
continue to do so today. This will mean more dry weather with
temperatures remaining above normal as highs will be in the upper
80s to around 90 degrees. Tonight will be dry and warm with lows
Wednesday morning from the mid 60s to lower 70s.
On Wednesday, a cold front will move through the region. Moisture
will be somewhat limited ahead of the front so only some isolated
thunderstorms are possible over northern sections of the forecast
area during the afternoon hours. Temperatures will remain warm
with highs in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees. By Wednesday
evening, the cold front will be moving into north Mississippi but
it appears that few if any thunderstorms are expected to develop.
Cooler air will start to move into the region allowing temperatures
to cool down some Wednesday night with lows Thursday morning
ranging from the mid to upper 60s.
The remainder of the forecast period will see a return of dry
weather as an upper level ridge returns to the eastern U.S. The
biggest difference that will be noticed during the period will be
below normal temperatures from Thursday through Monday.
Aside from patchy fog at kmkl expect VFR conditions through the
period. Winds will be light.
