Much cooler, breezy today
A cold front passed through the area this morning. Save for passing clouds and a couple of sprinkles between New Roads and McComb, little perceptible weather was seen along this front. Winds will become northwesterly and pick up to about 15mph as the day moves forward. The steady breeze pulling in cooler air will mean thermometers struggle to get beyond the lower 50s. Then tonight, with clear skies and a light north wind, readings will fall below freezing for most.
On Thursday, surface high pressure will move from west to east across our viewing area. The clockwise flow around this high means winds will swing around to the south by Thursday Afternoon and allow a quick warm up through the 50s. However, the warm up will be short-lived and ended by a third cold front this week that is expected to pass through Thursday Night into Friday. Much like Wednesday Morning's cold front, this one will pass primarily dry providing little more than patchy clouds, a sprinkle or two and a wind shift.
