Sunny skies will prevail across the Gulf Coast through the end of the week into the weekend. A cold front will approach the area by late Friday bringing crisp, cool weather back to the Gulf Coast this weekend. By next week, warmer weather returns, along with a chance of showers ahead of the next cold front, which arrives late Tuesday.
THANKSGIVING DAY - BLACK FRIDAY:
No significant changes are expected in the forecast through the end of the week. Sunshine and highs in the 70s can be expected each afternoon with lows in the 40s and 50s. A few high clouds will move over the area, especially late Thursday into Friday ahead of a cold front, which will arrive Friday afternoon. No rain is expected with the front.
The weekend forecast calls for sunny skies and highs in the 60s behind the front. Low temperatures Saturday morning will drop into the low/mid 40s, but the coldest morning will be Sunday morning, when low 30s are expected. A light freeze is expected near the Highway 84 corridor where some upper 20s are expected, so if you live in that area, take precautions now to protect your pets and plants from the expected cold.
MONDAY - WEDNESDAY (NEXT WEEK):
Winds will turn back out of the south, increasing humidity across the area. A few more clouds can be expected, as well as warmer temperatures. Highs will be back near 70 on Monday and low 70s for Tuesday. Another cold front will approach the area late Monday into Tuesday. A few light showers will be possible west of Mobile across southeast Mississippi by late Monday but rain chances will increase significantly on Tuesday as the front gets closer. Rain chances will continue Tuesday night, then move out Wednesday morning, followed by another cool down for the middle of next week!
