1/22 – Rob Knight’s Warmer/Humid Tuesday Morning Forecast

Increasing moisture moving into the region today will keep skies overcast and allow for scattered showers to begin forming this afternoon and evening. A southerly flow will also advect in a much warmer airmass, and expect to see highs in the upper 60s this afternoon. Conditions tonight will remain unsettled as forcing will allow for more numerous showers to begin to developing by late tonight. Temperatures will be well above normal with lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s across most of the forecast area with patchy fog.

A strong cold front will pass through the forecast area Wednesday night with scattered to numerous showers along with a few embedded t-storms Wednesday into Wednesday night before clearing from west to east. Temperatures will cool significantly by Thursday morning with lows in the 30s at most locations.

High pressure will dominate through Saturday with clear skies and slightly below normal temperatures. A Gulf low should begin to form over the north-central Gulf by Saturday night, and this may allow for coastal showers to begin developing by late Saturday and Sunday. However, the majority of the precipitation with this system will remain over the coastal waters and further into the central Gulf. By Sunday afternoon, dry air advection will lead to clearing skies across most of the area. Temperatures will generally remain near average through the weekend with highs near 60 and lows near 40.
