06/10 – Rob Knight’s “More Rain” Wednesday Morning Forecast
Deep upper level trough will dig through the upper Midwest today, dragging a cold front through the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms this morning with the activity beginning to wind down this afternoon. Due to the very saturated ground from Tropical Storm Cristobal, heavy rainfall could lead to areas of flash flooding.
Much drier weather will filter into the area this evening behind the cold front. An upper level trough will set up over the eastern U.S. while an upper level high-pressure will take hold over the Rockies and Plain states through the upcoming weekend.
That upper level pattern along with surface high pressure will keep unseasonably dry conditions for the region from Thursday through the end of the period. Mild clear nights and warm sunny days will persist from Thursday through the weekend with lows dropping into the lower to middle 60s and highs mid to upper 80s.
