05/17 Ryan’s “Spring Day” Wednesday Night Forecast
Tonight’s low of 76 degrees seems like it would be right at home on a nice early Spring day in March, but that’s the “coolest” temperature we’ll see tonight! Southerly winds continue to pool low level moisture into the area, but also continue to nearly 8000 meters above our heads, meaning the overall moisture layer is deepening. Tomorrow is expected to cool by a degree or so due to thickening cloud cover, and daytime heating/sea breeze effects could bring about a few afternoon showers in this increasingly more unstable atmosphere. Basically, not much changes until our next front moves in on Sunday.
This next front is currently gaining strength near the “four corners” area, but will begin sliding down from the Rockies over the next few days. This front is moving incredibly slowly, and by Saturday afternoon will still just be pushing into West Louisiana. It also seems to be losing some of it’s organization, but a few other parameters show a few strong storms are still possible. We’ll continue to monitor this situation over the coming days.
