04/18 – Brantly’s “Cool and Calm” Sunday Night Forecast
A ridge of high pressure will build eastward from Texas into the Lower Mississippi Valley and adjacent north central Gulf Coast region through Monday afternoon. A cooler and drier airmass will spread over our forecast area through the day Monday. No rain is expected over inland areas through the near term period. Highs Monday should warm into the lower to mid 70s. Lows tonight will be cool with readings in the mid 40s to near 50 degrees away from the coast and in the lower to mid 50s along the immediate coast.
Expect a continuation of the much needed dry weather and pleasant daytime temperatures with low humidity on Thursday into early Friday. Another transition from dry to more humid and wetter will occur again through the day on Friday. This will be due to a potent but fast moving system that will be moving out of the southwest U.S. into the southern Plains region ether Friday afternoon or Friday night with lower confidence due to model spread. The system is then expected to pass through the lower Mississippi Valley region Saturday or Sunday. Wet weather will be possible Friday night into Saturday, but then a dry and nice day on Sunday. We will continue to monitor this system and fine tune the forecast and any impactful weather as it draws nearer.
