could it be? a slight cool down?? the rumors are true: a cold front is arriving. even more crazy? there's yet another one in the extended forecast. if you keep your expectations in check, i think you'll be pleasantly surprised with the extended forecast. the first of two cold fronts arriving late wednesday bringing with it showers and thunderstorms that shift south and diminish after dark. with slightly drier air in place, temperatures will drop in the lower 70s by early wednesday morning. wednesday's highs will be marginally cooler in the lower 90s and really, the bigger difference, will be less humidity relative to what we've had. this is not a "fall-like" front but it is noticeably less humid. it will still look night with some showers and thunderstorms for the south west section of the viewing area: grenada, attalla, winston, and noxubee counties. in fact, it still remains possible that a complex of have your thunderstorms could roll through locations in this zone, so we are retaining 30% rain coverage for that section of the viewing area. this front, however, is short-lived though should still control thursday. temperatures will start in the upper sixties/lower 70s for early thursday but reach our 30 year average high temperature by afternoon in the lower 90s. rain chances should be limited to 20% or less on thursday with a preference for perhaps some storms moving in from the north west late in the day. we really heat back up on friday with temperature starting in the mid-70s and reaching the mid 90s by afternoon. there are some questions revolving around what could be an organized complex at thunderstorms on friday but could have a significant impact on temperatures but it still going to be a day or so before we can nail that down. i have quite a difference in my projections as to the coverage of rainfall because of the possible development of this complex. saturday is the day of transition with rain chances diminishing somewhat yet temperature still reaching the lower 90s by afternoon. a front moving through the area will drag in dryer air that will allow sunday to be cooler weather typically speaking. sunday's hives will reach the upper 80s and lower 90s and should stay that way into the first half of next week. through that timeframe, sunday into next week, not only will it be substantially dryer and marginally cooler than what we expect for this time of year, but rain chances should be negligible.
