1/6 – Brantly’s “Cold Front Moving Through” Thursday Evening Forecast

A band of showers continues to exit to the east as the cold front moves through the area. Although we have a little moisture moving into the area as well as the frontal passage moving through, we still lack a lot of the necessary instability needed to produce actual thunderstorms. With this in mind, mainly just showers are expected to continue through early evening tonight. Cooler air will move into the area behind the front causing temperatures to drop well below normal to near freezing in most areas with lows tonight into Friday morning in the low 30s. Daytime temperatures will see an almost 20 degree difference from today’s temps and are expected to be chilly with highs barely reaching mid 50s. Friday night temperatures will be chilly once again with lows in the upper 40s to low 30s. Winds look to really lighten up Friday night so wouldn`t be surprised if temperatures drop closer to freezing with the help of continued strong cold air moving in.

Saturday temperatures will see an increase with highs in the low 70s and upper 60s as the ridge of high pressure shifts and warmer air is pushed into the area. A slight repeat of fronts is expected Saturday night as a cold front is forecast to move through the area some time Saturday evening. The only difference with this front is the substantial moisture will allow for increased chances of rainfall across the area on Sunday and development of one or two thunderstorms. Persisting warm air advection will allow for seasonably warm temperatures to continue through Sunday with highs in the mid/upper 70s.
