02/16 Ryan’s “Cool & Dry” Thursday Afternoon Forecast
I love it when a forecast verifies nearly perfectly, especially when it precedes a beautifully dry & sunny day like today. Last night was chilly and while tonight will remain in the low-to-mid 40s, we’re already seeing warming trend which won’t stop until after the weekend. Friday morning will remain cool & clear, but clouds increase through the afternoon and showers/t-storms are expected overnight. This will primarily be because of weak & warm surface frontogenesis related to an upper level low moving across the SE. Rain is expected to begin moving in around midnight, and continue into the early Saturday morning hours. These storms are not expected to be severe at this time and the bulk of the stronger storms will linger over the water. Saturday afternoon will see clearing, but this airmass originated from the Pacific and will be warmer than average. We’ll begin next week in the mid-to-upper 70s, and will slowly cool as a slow moving disturbance will bring clouds and rain from Monday night into Wednesday.
