Lightning Tonight...Low Humidity Arrives Soon

Watching a good lightning show tonight from the South as a cluster of thunderstorms clash through Jones County. Good news that we haven't heard any news from you guys up there and the storms are dissipating.

Another round of thunderstorms is expected to swing through South Mississippi in accordance with a frontal passage. A cold front will slowly creep southward tomorrow and deliver a rumbling, but the weekend should become very nice behind the front. I expect the front completely move through between midnight and 3am Saturday morning.

Dewpoints in the lower 60s will be a nice change from Td's in the mid-70's...unless you like the sticky goodness of mid-70s dewpoints. I know we all have our likes and dislikes.

This cold front is dropping in from a unusually robust Mid-lattitude cyclone near the Great Lakes, and added to a major ridge/trough setup nation wide. But we can also thank our friend, Bill, churning deep atmospheric blunders to the global pattern for a bit.

A lower level High pressure system will control our sunny forecast going through Sunday and into Tuesday. Enjoy!
