Mississippi Skies: Warm temps and rainy weather continue for Christmas; watching timing for precipitation and cold air later this week

Published 10:03 pm Sunday, December 24, 2023

While most of the state will have rainy weather for at least part of the day Christmas, it’s almost beach weather on the Gulf Coast. Highs across the state will be in the 60s while the Gulf Coast will reach into the 70s with partly cloudy skies. Maybe Santa brought a kite for Christmas!

We’ll have Christmas-like weather Tuesday for the Second Day of Christmas. We’ll have a mixture of clouds and sun with much more seasonable temperatures.

Looking ahead, some models are showing a drastic drop in temperatures for the upcoming weekend. Just how cold will it be? We’ll wait and see. Another system is expected to move through. We’re not calling for snow right, but we’ll certainly have to keep an eye on temperatures and timing of any precipitation. Models are just showing a cold rain for most of us right now.
