Beautiful sunshine impacted a majority of the Southern U.S. today as we saw highs topping out in the mid-60's, and tomorrow will also bring forth afternoon temps in the upper 60's. Although we are set to see a rainy start of the work week. Actually, make that a rainy monday morning to start our work week. A cold front will dig into Hatt/Laurel Monday morning to usher in light to moderate rainfall. This timing looks to fall right in line with most of our morning drives before work, and then the rain will exit east relatively quickly as the day progresses. Dry air will also move into the Pine Belt to hinder any chance of precip after Monday's rainfall.
Monday's front won't bring the coldest temperatures of the week immediately, but the front will allow the cold air to beginning to seep into South Mississippi. My forecast reflects Wednesday/Thursday mornings being the coldest temps of the week. After Wednesday things look to warm. Most long-range forecast models tend to agree Thur/Fri/and Sat. will slowly warm and progress into temps near the 70's by next weekend.
