1/1 – Rob Knight’s New Year’s Day “Morning News” Forecast

A stalled frontal boundary will remain parked over the area through Wednesday. The boundary is literally bisecting the area this morning with a moderate temperature structure to go with it. This same boundary hugs the western gulf coast as well and this is where the next surface low will begin to develop Wednesday. The low will track over the area Thursday into Thursday night. Another round of heavy rainfall looks to be associated with it as well. This looks to be over much the same areas as the last strong system impacted. With the ground so very saturated, it will not take as much rainfall to cause some flooding once again.

Foggy conditions will also remain over areas along and east of the stalled front. Visibility with it will be up and down through mid-morning for those areas not under thick cloud cover. The area continues under a DENSE FOG ADVISORY through mid-morning.

By the time Friday morning gets here, the cold front will have moved through and this time the system is advertised to have a clean exit. We could use some dry conditions to help improve saturated grounds heading into the weekend with a cooler/drier air mass moving in.
