1/7 – Brantly’s “Cool and Mostly Clear” Friday Evening Forecast
Conditions will remain dry and mainly clear skies will stick around overnight as high pressure remains over the area. Much colder air continues to filter into the region today with temperatures remaining a bit on the chilly side with overnight lows in the mid 40s. Highs on Saturday should moderate back into the lower to mid 60s across the area.
A weak disturbance will begin lifting across the northwest Gulf toward Louisiana and Mississippi through Saturday. Even with this system moving in from the south, limited moisture availability over our region will keep any precipitation chances to a minimum through Saturday. Low-level moisture will gradually improve through the day on Saturday, so we will likely see cloud cover increase over most of the area by Saturday afternoon.
Saturday night through Sunday will be characterized by high rain chances, between 70 percent and 100 percent, before a cold front clears out the area starting around midnight Sunday night. While some thunderstorms may develop during this event, models suggest there is little to no severe weather potential as instability in the atmosphere is barely enough to support the development of lightning and thunder.
Expect to start out the new week chilly once again with the cold front passing through early in the day on Monday.
