Cooler air is now entrenched in Eastern Mississippi and Western Alabama for the next several days. We will continue to see a good northerly breeze in here for the next few days due to Sandy being to our east and northeast over the next few days. This will make the chilly overnight temperatures and the cool daytime temperatures feel much cooler than their measured air temperature.
We will see a good chance for a freeze or near freezing temperatures in the area for our late Sunday night and Monday morning, another round late Monday night and into Tuesday morning. Granted that the cloud cover does break up as expected.
By middle to later sections of the upcoming work week, we will see a gradual warming trend move into the area. We will tap into some nice southerly winds and this will bring our daytime highs back into the 70s and overnight lows back into the middle 40s to lower 50s.
Now, back to Sandy . . . . . She will give us very little in the way of cloud cover over the next several days. All of the energy of Sandy will be well to the northeast of the area. Once again, the greatest affect that we will see from Sandy is the north and northwesterly winds around the circulation. They will be greatly watered down by the time they reach our area.
