1/25 – Rob Knight’s Friday Afternoon Forecast

We are on-tap for a beautiful late January weekend as the cold air mass will slowly modify…

A strong cold front will sweep through the Gulf South late Monday night into Tuesday. Rain chances should be highest immediately after frontal passage late Monday night into Tuesday morning. By Tuesday afternoon, the front should be well offshore and a much drier and colder airmass will move into the area. Currently, it looks like the moisture should be clear of the area by the time an airmass cold enough to support winter precipitation moves into the region. Temperatures in advance of the front on Monday should warm into the middle to upper 60s, but highs on Tuesday should only be in the upper 30s and lower 40s for most of the area in the wake of the front.

Clear and dry conditions combined with a very cold airmass aloft should allow for the coldest temperatures of the season Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Lows are forecast to fall into the middle to upper 20s over interior areas, and the lower to middle 30s closer to the coast. The thermal trough should quickly begin to pull to the east on Wednesday, but highs will still be a good 10 degrees below normal in the lower 50s.
