05/05 – Brantly’s “Stormy Morning, Drier Afternoon” Wednesday Forecast
Based on the latest high resolution models, it will likely to take another few hours for this system to shift south and east to push thunderstorms far enough offshore to relax the flash flood threat across significant population areas. The National Weather Service has extended the Flash Flood Watch through 1 p.m. and mentioned potential for another 1 to 3 inches of rain. Another round of scattered storms will be possible near the coast through early Thursday before the front finally shifts far enough offshore to eliminate any threat of precipitation by late in the day Thursday.
Drier air will be rather noticeable as high pressure to our west finally pushes into the area Thursday night into Saturday morning.
As surface high pressure advances eastward to close out the week, temperatures look to trend much cooler. Overnight lows Thursday night lower into the lower to mid 50s north of I-10 to upper 50s/lower 60s coast. Friday night, although as mentioned with potential of high based cirrus moving in, expect these clouds to be thin enough as to not overly impact lows with a few spots over our far northern zones potentially dipping down into the upper 40s. Otherwise, most areas range in the lower to mid 50s, except immediate coast around 60. Highs on Friday in the mid to upper 70s.
