01/12 – Brantly’s “Clouds Slowly Clearing, Still Cold” Tuesday Forecast
A low cloud deck is holding firm this morning across the Southeast stretching out over the northern Gulf. Clearing skies forecast going into the afternoon, but some clouds will return tonight as a weak system pushes across the area. The lack of deep layer moisture however appears too limited and there is little to no chance for rain. High pressure will gradually build into the region over the next couple of days, giving us mostly clear skies through the end of the week. This pattern maintains a light northerly wind over the area along with dry and cool conditions through mid-week. Highs today look to be in the upper 40s to lower 50s then warming up a little into the lower to mid 50s for Wednesday. Lows tonight range the lower to mid 30s.
A cold front will move across the area Thursday night into Friday morning with a chance of showers. Significant moisture return is not expected ahead of this front, so rainfall amounts will remain light. Highs on Thursday will be in the upper 50s and low 60s. Lows Wednesday night will be in the upper 20s and low 30s inland to low 40s along the coast. Lows on Thursday night will be in the upper 30s and low 40s inland to upper 40s along the coast.
