The Rain Came

Well it has rained almost all day in Hattiesburg/Laurel. Total Event Rain totals so far as of 8:30pm: WDAMTV=0.83", PIB = 0.77", Jackson = 0.81", Meridian = 0.48", McComb = 1.06", Gulfport = 0.04". You can see where the rain hasn't been...Gulfport. Today we have seen the Cold Front turn into a stationary boundary over the I-59 Corridor, and Gulfport definitely has a rare case of only 0.04" so far. I expect the coast will see a little more rain later in the night, but not nearly close to the Hatt/Laurel totals. Also, Temps have dropped the expected 15-20 degrees from this time yesterday. We are finally back to more normal temps for this time of year. Expect a couple of mild days ahead of us, but rain chances coming late in the week. The last two model runs indicate WAA, warm air advection, coming into play late on New Years day. This will allow some showers to break out, and Friday will follow through with another cold front. But please don't miss the sunshine Monday afternoon and into Tuesday. Things will finally clear up these next few days as an enjoyable 1028mb High Pressure system will build into Mississippi. Have a great week! And make sure to check back here for your local Pine Belt New Years Day Forecast!
