1/21 – Rob Knight’s “Gray/Gloomy” Afternoon Forecast
Surface high will shift eastward today, as warm air moves into the region providing for additional lift. This will encourage the development of precipitation this afternoon as the Interstate 20 boundary effectively gets pulled southward. Expect rain to focus near the boundary overnight into Friday. Any thunder should be rather limited with rain totals in excess of 2 inches expected near the boundary.
Rain should taper off during the day on Friday as the disturbance passes. Expect front to become stationary somewhere between inland counties and our outer coastal waters. Any precipitation Friday night or Saturday should be isolated and light.
The axis of the disturbance will move east on Sunday with a series of minor disturbances carving out a large and broad trough over the western U.S. into northwest Mexico. Slightly higher chances of rain will start to return to the more inland areas Sunday.
