10/1 – Rob Knight’s “1st Morning of October” Forecast
A weak upper-level disturbance rotating through the mid-west will push a dry front through the area this evening. The result of this will be a reinforcing cold/dry air through the region.
Strong surface high pressure will build in from the north Friday through most of the weekend. Persistent cold air advection will keep temps 5 to 10 degrees below normal each day. Saturday looks like the coldest with morning lows in the 50s and highs in the mid to upper 80s.
The remainder of the forecast still looking dry for the most part as the trough lifts out and the upper high-pressure to the west builds in across Texas and Louisiana as the week progresses. From a tropical standpoint, there are a couple waves that may develop in the western Caribbean this weekend and early next week. Based on the forecast upper level pattern, the area will be protected by the trough this weekend and high-pressure next week.
