Almost time to flip the calendar to March, but not before February gets its quad-annual bonus day! Also, happy birthday to my older sister. If only she was 1 day later, she’d be turning 9 tomorrow! Okay, shoutout aside, let’s see what’s in store for Leap Year 2016 on the Gulf Coast!
At 953pm CST, the temperature at Gulfport, MS was 60 degrees under fair skies. High pressure over the Gulf Coast could lead to some spotty fog in the morning, but should burn off fairly quickly after sunrise. Dry conditions are expected throughout the day as the tail end of a cold front passes north of the area. A stronger area of low pressure looks to move into the Mid-MS River Valley on Tuesday, trailing a much stronger cold front. While the worst of it will remain to the north, a few scattered showers or thunderstorms could affect the area in the late afternoon/early evening hours. Temperatures should remain fairly steady for both days too, looks pretty pleasant for Leap Day!
