02/18 – Rob Knight’s “Foggy and Warm” Tuesday Morning Forecast
Another morning with DENSE FOG as an advisory is in effect through mid-morning. Surface low currently over east New Mexico will track east and northeast today; after the low passes east, the associated cold frontal system will drop south into the area this afternoon/evening, with more showers and a few storms. Areas of fog will once again be possible overnight into Wednesday morning. The front will take its time moving through the region.
There are some placement and timing differences with the different weather modes. The best day for widespread rainfall looks to be Thursday as the front really pushes through the area. Today and Wednesday as the front stalls over the area, rain coverage should be more hit or miss and dependent on surface heating.
The disturbance will dive southeast across mid-Mississippi Valley Friday and southeast coast Saturday. This feature will yield a northwest flow over the forecast area Friday and Saturday as sunshine and cooler temperatures will move in. The next system will begin affect the area late Sunday through Tuesday of next week.
