01/28 – Rob’s “Foggy Start” Tuesday Morning Forecast
Tuesday morning begins chilly and foggy, but sunshine is expected by the middle of the day. The eastward progression of high pressure will allow for onshore flow to develop, with winds coming off the Gulf of Mexico. This setup will bring warmer temperatures and increasing moisture to the local area today. Expect highs in the 60s.
A disturbance dropping out of the Rockies into the Central Plains today will be bringing the next chance of rain. Showers should be nudging in on the western fringe of the area this evening. Rain chances will peak after midnight, with nearly 100% coverage, which may include isolated thunderstorms.
The progressive pattern of rain every 2 to 3 days looks like it will persist through the rest of the week. Models show a more amplified system to move across the Mississippi Valley Friday night. This will bring a wide swath of showers across the area. Once it moves east of the area Friday night, we will see at least a few consecutive dry days before the next system moves in.
