1/24 – Rob Knight’s “Clearing & Colder” Morning Forecast

A strong NW flow will remain in firm control of the Gulf South through Saturday. Strong subsidence and a pool of dry air will keep skies clear through the end of the week. With a colder/drier air mass moving in, temperatures will stay below seasonal through the weekend. Daytime highs will only climb into the 50s today and tomorrow…slight modification in the airmass on Saturday should allow for highs closer to 60 degrees. The clear and dry conditions will allow for a fairly large diurnal range, and expect to see overnight lows fall into the 30s tonight and tomorrow night across all of the forecast area. By Saturday night, temperatures should rise slightly into the upper 30s and lower 40s.

The benign weather conditions will persist on Sunday and Monday as a more zonal flow pattern begins to take hold in the upper levels. A surface high will remain in firm control of the region, and expect to see continued mostly clear skies and low humidity values. The biggest change will be a return to more normal temperatures with highs in the 60s both Sunday and Monday and overnight lows in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Another system will begin to dig into the eastern third of the nation Monday night into Tuesday, and this will drive a cold front through the forecast area late Monday night and early Tuesday.
