05/11 – Brantly’s “Dry and Sunny” Monday Afternoon Forecast
Overall weather pattern remains quiet in the short-term. We will see a weak cold front swinging in from the north later this morning, which will not have much impact to the weather across the area other than keeping winds continued from the north. Expect ample sunshine and highs still remaining slightly below normal today.
Tonight through Tuesday, a slow and steady return flow builds back as surface high pressure moves off to the east. It’ll be a slow transition beginning with easterly winds during the morning hours on Tuesday, with moist air beginning to flow across the Atchafalaya Basin region during the day. By Tuesday night, we begin to switch focus on a weak disturbance to the west which will begin to destabilize the atmosphere.
As a result of the lifting and moisture presence in the atmosphere, some showers and storms are possible Wednesday through Saturday, mainly during the daytime heating hours those days.
A low pressure system is expected to move through the area Sunday into the beginning of next week, which will enhance rain chances as well. More details regarding this system will be evident over the next week.
