1/4 – Brantly’s “Mostly Clear and Cool” Tuesday Evening Forecast
Tonight, with light and variable winds are expected and clear skies expected over most of the forecast area, efficient cooling will allow temperatures to drop into low 40s. With some moisture return over western portions of the area, some fog development is possible.
With southerly winds over the area, moisture levels continue to increase. An isolated shower or two will be possible tomorrow during peak daytime heating hours, especially along the coastal areas. Thunder/lightning is not expected with these showers, but a lightning strike or two may occur inside any stronger showers and cannot be ruled out.
Thursday, an upper level low pressure system is expected to move through the area, which will enhance rain chances for the area somewhat. Southerly winds ahead of the frontal system will also help increase instability in the atmosphere across the region. Looking at the models, scattered showers will be possible as this system moves through the area. Thunder and lightning is not likely with this system, but it cannot be ruled out, especially inside of any stronger storms or over the marine areas. Winds will shift northerly during the daytime hours on Thursday, which will enhance cold air and dry air moving into the region Thursday night into Friday morning.
