1/14 – Rob Knight’s “Cold & Cloudy” Monday Morning Forecast
Extensive cloud cover due primarily to wind flow over snow pack farther north enriched from moisture continues. This process will likely continue through today though some erosion along the edges may make sky cover vary from scattered to broken in some locations closer to the coast. The cloud cover may also affect temperature forecast should breaks evolve to allow for some localized radiational cooling. I am going with the cooler temps in anticipation of some erosion through the night. High pressure influences are maintained through Tuesday night.
A high-pressure dome will slowly moderates while moving east Wednesday, allowing for moisture return Wednesday night into Thursday along with an approaching cold front. This will be the next best chance for rainfall that likely carries through the weekend. Rain is more convective (t-storms) in nature Thursday night along and ahead of a cold front that is primarily a wind shift boundary. A much colder surge takes place Friday as precipitation becomes a cold rain Saturday. The weekend looks to be a raw stretch of cold and windy with at least light freeze conditions likely Sunday morning.
