Mississippi Skies: More cold weather in the forecast. How long will it last?

Published 11:37 pm Monday, November 27, 2023

We’ll stay cool Tuesday with temperatures dipping well below freezing for most of the state Tuesday night. We’ll have lows in the upper-20s to around 30 all the way to our southern counties with the only exception being along the Gulf Coast. With temps that low, it will be necessary to protect the four Ps: People, pets, pipes, and plants.

Cold weather won’t last long, though. We’ll have another warmup over the next few days with another system bringing our next chances of rain. Right now, most models are showing rain with a few thunderstorms. We’ll keep watching to see if anything changes in the forecast as far as the strength of storms.

We’re also watching the forecast for Oxford, which is the host for this year’s football state championship games. Right now, it’s looking like Thursday evening games may get soggy.
