Foggy Early, Warming Later, Rainy Weekend???

Posted: Updated:

Early patchy fog has kicked off this work week with temps near freezing making for a bit of frost on car windows. You'll need to give yourself a moment or two to warm up your vehicle. Temps will rise to the 60s with winds NE 5-10 mph.

Tonight the moisture building up again and we'll be on the look out for some dense fog to cover the ground. Fortunately the temps will stay above freezing and in the 40s during the overnight period. There's also a shift in the winds expected that will aid in making it feel warmer - from the east at 5-10 mph.

Tomorrow the sunshine kicks in after a foggy start, winds shifting from the south east at 6-11 mph. Expect highs to reach into the mid 60s and a warming trend to kick in during the mid week days.

Late week and next weekend, the forecast is quite complicated. There will be a cold front just west of our area. The front will move into the area Thursday into Friday. The big question is if the front will move through the area, stall, or move back north. Right now, I believe the front  will slowly move into our area, then stall briefly, before lifting back north. This means we'll have a couple of days of rain, followed by a brief stint of cooler weather across central and north Mississippi, then warming up and drying out for a couple of days.
