Mississippi Skies: Much colder weather coming. How long will sunny skies last?

Published 9:05 pm Sunday, December 31, 2023

The New Year begins with much colder temperatures across the Magnolia State, especially when darkness falls Monday.

We’ll have highs from the 40s upstate to the 60s along the Gulf Coast. Monday night, northern counties will drop into the lower 20s with freezing temperatures stretching all the way to the coastal counties.

Our next shot of rain comes Wednesday. Although most of the moisture should move out before Wednesday night, there is a chance for a few sprinkles. With temps in the 20s for some of us, that could get interesting. We’ll keep an eye on forecast models to see if we need to change that from sprinkles to snow flurries or some other wintry precipitation.
