1/24 – Rob’s “Cold & Clear” Monday Morning Forecast
A surface high-pressure has given us the coldest temps so far this season and year will quickly shift east today and clouds will begin to invade from the west bringing cloudy skies back to the area through the day today. Strong return flow over the western gulf of Mexico will move back into the area. An area of low-pressure will track east along the N’tern GOM tonight with enough lift for rain but not for t-storms. However, it would not be surprising to see a flash or two within the large area of moderate rainfall. The best chance of this occurring would still remain at or near the coast. Offshore is a different story and there should be lighting at least within the vicinity of the surface low.
Temperature wise, the next couple of days will remain on the cool side. High temperature will generally not get past the 60s. Lows for a few days will be touching or just right below freezing for the rest of this workweek. There is another threat of a HARD FREEZE Friday night as another disturbance brings cold Canadian air through the region.
