Heavy Rain, then Much Colder !November 25th, 2013 at 3:22 pm by Jason Smith under FOX10 Stormtracker Weather
Rain Begins Tonight
Temperatures were quite cool today, with a high in the mid 50’s. We saw cloudy conditions for most of the day without much significant rain. A few spotty showers popped up on radar in the inland sections of our forecast area in the late afternoon.
The atmosphere is moistening up, and scattered showers should develop this evening. A surface low pressure system in the western Gulf heads our way overnight. This feature will be the focus for heavier rains beginning especially after midnight tonight. Temperatures overnight will remain in the 50’s.
Heavy rain should continue on Tuesday, with chances at 100%. A thunderstorm is possible especially to the east along the Florida Panhandle.
We may see a break in the rain in the middle of the day as the surface low tracks directly across the area. Winds begin to turn more northerly by lunchtime, and temperatures will fall into the low 50’s by the late afternoon. Expect lighter rains continuing into the evening. The forecast is for 2”-3” amounts across the area from tonight through Tuesday night.
Cold Rain Ends
Look for a cold and breezy situation Tuesday, with light rain ending. Lows will be in the mid 30’s Tuesday night… If you are travelling north, light wintry precipitation is possible in west central Mississippi and northern Alabama.
Wednesday will be very cold and dry, with highs in the upper 40’s. A significant freeze event is possible Wednesday night. Many locations will see lows in the low-mid 20’s just north of I-10.
The forecast looks colder and clear for Thanksgiving. Highs will only be in the 50’s. We will see plenty of sunshine. More light freezing temperatures are possible Thanksgiving Night. Expect a warming trend for Black Friday and the weekend. Temperatures will be back into the 60’s by Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
