1/26 – Rob Knight’s “Sunny But Cool” Hump Day Morning Forecast
A disturbance along the four Corners will weaken over the next 36 hours as it moves eastward. The Canadian trough behind it will move into the Great Plains and middle Mississippi River Valley Friday morning, reaching the Atlantic Coast by sunrise Saturday. Onshore flow never gets established, with forecast dew points expected to remain primarily in the 20s and 30s over the next 3 days. A few passing shower can be expected very early Friday morning with the passage of this disturbance.
A quiet pattern is expected for the weekend with strong cold air advecting into the region. As high-pressure slides to the east Sunday, a return flow will begin. As a result, temperatures will be significantly warmer with lows only cooling into the upper 30s and lower 40s Sunday night.
Monday will turn increasingly unsettled as a vigorous southern stream disturbance begins to push into Texas. This vigorous system is expected to pass through the forecast area Monday night into Tuesday.
