The evening low won’t dip out of the 70s in Gulfport tonight, as southerly winds continue to pool low-level moisture in the area. I’m already seeing a light mist or haze in generally “moist” locations, and we still have a few more degrees to cool with winds weakening as well. Therefore, expect another night of patchy fog developing across the coast, but it should only be locally dense in the most fog-prone areas. Any fog that forms won’t last long past the morning on what will be one of the warmest and nicest afternoons of the week, with a high near 83 and mostly sunny skies.
These pleasant conditions continue for the rest of the week, and through the first part of Saturday, but that’s when our most significant weather changes in some time begin to arise. The first cold front we’ve seen in quite some time will begin moving through South MS by late Saturday afternoon, and could carry over into Sunday morning. No severe weather is expected with this system at this time, but Spring in the Gulf South can make storms unpredictable, so we’ll continue to monitor the situation.
The front will move through by Sunday morning and we’ll begin seeing immediate cooling/clearing, but the cooler conditions only last a day or so before we begin warming again.
